This guide will introduce the reader to molecular sequence analysis. In the context of this guide, sequence analysis is the process of trying to find out something about a nucleotide or amino acid sequence, employing in silico biology techniques. You may have sequenced a gene yourself, and wish to learn what the long string of letters representing bases, actually code for. You may want to confirm that you have indeed cloned a gene successfully, or you might want to learn about a sequence of DNA that you know absolutely nothing about. You may want to know if a worm has a similar protein to a human one. These, and many other situations, require that you employ sequence analysis.
