tacg is a command-line program that performs many of the common routines in pattern matching in biological strings. It was originally designed for restriction enzyme analysis and while that still forms a core of the program, it has been expanded to fill more roles, sort of a 'grep' for DNA. However, it is also more than that: a brief description of its abilities is at the bottom of this page.
