Nearly everything. Great!
What does not
Start a Blast search via webbrowser. BioEdit can't launch a web browser although firefox and IE are installed and working. Throws an error: "Access violation at address 7EDDAB68 in module 'user.dll'. Read of address C07EDF54.".
What was not tested
Needs Data Access Components to run which can be easily installed with Wine Doors.

BioEdit works very well using wine 1.2.1.
The 1.3.x series has some bugs in it, so it is recommended to use the stable version for a hassle free use.
Also keep in mind that in some computers (I cannot find a pattern) the "alternate" BioEdit.exe available on the official website is required to be able to run BioEdit. This is not a wine bug as it also happens on computers with Windows.
