Chromas is free. Assembly of multiple sequences is only available in the paid version Chromas pro.
Chromas is a free and easy to use sequence viewer that offers all basic features (and a bit more) that you need to analyse sequence samples. The only drawback in my opinion is that it is not possible to see the raw data. If you need to assemble multiple sequences you can purchase Chromas Pro, a free 14-day trial is available.
