Turns out that I was directing this question to the net for someone else--A
DNA person who has used that gel shift/cut out band/gel shift/... procedure.
Personally I am interested in RNA, but this person is not. Are any of the
GCG suite programs well suited to aligning and deriving a consensus from a
set of small DNA sequences?

I will probably be in a position to try it out someday soon.
