DNA Resources

Web Tools

BLAST:

Pairwise and Multiple Alignment - Aligns multiple sequences of the same type, both protein, and nucleic acids:

Database Searching - Resources that allow users to find sequences based on text or accession number queries:

Editing and Publishing - Resources to allow users to modify sequence files for publication and record keeping:

Phylogeny/Parsimony - Resources to allow the generation trees that provide evolutionary relationship between groups of similar sequences and determine the most probable path of evolution:

Fragment Assembly - Resources to permit users to assemble sequencing projects, excepts sequences, assemble the contigs, and possibly generate a consensus sequence:

Gene Finding and Pattern Recognition - Resources to allow users to find open reading frames within unknown sequences, patterns in sequences, and get statistics on sequences:

Primer Selection - Resources to help users design primers for PCR and sequencing:

Translation - Resources to generate a translated peptide from DNA sequences:
