Because Java is slow? :)

I have yet to see a good speedy java app that actually does

Thinking of apps...  Check out this recent issue of Bioinformatics:

Milanesi et al.  GeneBuilder: interactive in silico prediction of gene
structure.  15(7/8):612-621
web version of genebuilder can be found at

Kolchanov et al.  Integrated databases and computer systems for studying
eukaryotic gene expression.  15(7/8):669-686
