The programs part of the Staden package provide an excellent and fully
developed set of DNA sequence assembly, editing, analysis and more.
Some of its features include:
GAP4 - Performs assembly, contig joining, assembly checking, repeat
search, experiment suggestion, read pair analysis and contig
GAP5 - The new development version of Gap4, designed to work with the
large volumes of data attainable through the newer sequencing
PREGAP4 - Provides a graphical user interface to set up the processing
required to prepare trace data for assembly or analysis.
SPIN - Compares pairs of sequences in many ways, often presenting its
results graphically and has a sliding sequence window linked to
TREV - A rapid and flexible viewer and editor for ABI, ALF or SCF

1) You should run the SlackBuild in real root environment (su -)!
2) Make sure you have Emacs and Tetex installed at build time.
3) Although unsupported at the moment, SPIN can provide a GUI for the
EMBOSS suite programs. If you want to give it a try, run as root
"create_emboss_data" (EMBOSS should be installed, of course). This
generates some files in /usr/share/staden/tcl/spin_emboss/acdtcl,
so remember to manually clean them if you later uninstall staden.
