A few days ago, I walked into a no-name rummage shop, on Pine and Summit in
Seattle, and found a large Gene Sequencer, with attached teletype, and lots
of other analytical equipment. It's a heavy duty piece of equipment (all
steel,) and very serious looking. It probably weighs a ton, and it's about 4
feet long by 2-3 feet tall. Also, it looks old, like from the late
sixties-early seventies (just a guess.)

If anyone is interested, you might want to go and check it out. Don't ask me
how a Gene Sequencer from the University of Washington ever found it's way
into a hole in the wall rummage shop, or what on earth they hope to do with
it. I figure that there might be a hand full of people in the world who
might want it, and I doubt they would pay much for it. Still, it's an
interesting machine, and the extra hardware and teletype might be useful to


PS. They also have a very nice and complete Commodore Plus 4, with floppy
drive and matching printer that looks to be a cool little system.
