Summary This volume addresses a variety of areas in which computers are used to manage and manipulate nucleic acid and protein sequence data. The manipulations include searching, aligning, and determining the significance of similarities, as well as the construction of phylogenetic trees that show the evolutionary history of related sequences. Ready-to-use methods for the "at-the-bench" scientist are presented
