	ClustalW is a multiple alignment program. clustalX is its
	multi-platform grafic user interface.

	what do you mean "gene sequences"? It is NOT a fragment assembly
	program. The Staden package provide a fragment assembly program. It
	can be sused to align DNA sequences.

	It can run and mostly all unices, Mac, and Windows 32bits platforms.

	Probably, you can try to get the last Trends in Genetics or read the
book "Methods in enzymology". You will probably have all the answers in it.

	Pleased. But next time, add a subject to your post. It might help.
