MAXAMIZE. A DNA sequencing strategy advisor.


The MAXAMIZE advisory system determines from user-provided restriction maps an optimal strategy to do nucleotide sequencing by methods involving end-labeled fragments. The maps may be either simple linear restriction maps of fragments or complex circular maps including restriction sites of a vector. The whole system is interactive and is written in the Genetic English language provided by the GENESIS System, a molecular genetics knowledge representation and manipulation package. In addition, MAXAMIZE provides bookkeeping facilities for sequencing and offers advise on how to verify the newly obtained sequence data.
