A collegue of mine who is rather unfamiliar with both computers and the net
would like to experiment with (DOS) software for automatic sequence compari-
son (of both DNA and proteins). Now, when you read this newsgroup, it looks
like this is already a mature field, with many programs addressing diverse
needs and running on different platforms.
So my question is : is there anywhere an introductory document whith pointers
to further references and actual software (either free or commercial) which
he could look up to start the ball rolling ?
Many thanks beforehand
