need help - alignment of sequences

I dont believe Sequence Navigator is still available... they certainly
stopped distributing it for a while, perhaps there is a new version now?

I would suggest investigating Emboss (www.hgmp.mrc.ac.uk), perhaps GCG, or
TIGR-assembler. All of these should assemble txt files of sequences
checking for reverse complimentarity as well as identity. I think this was
a major problem with Sequence Navigator... I would only assemble if you
knew which strand you were on.

Good luck
