 I would suggest the following primer books, I usually recommend for
new users :

1. Sequence Analysis Primer
  edited by : Michael Gribskov
              John Devereux
  N Stockton press  1991.
(Examples in this book are output from the gcg package)

2. Methods in Enzymology
   vol. 183
   Molecular Evolution : Computer Analysis of
   Protein and Nucleic Acid Sequences.

   Edited by : Russel F. Doolittle
   Academic Press, INc   1990.

3. Phylogenetic Analysis of DNA Sequences
   edited by : Michael M. Miyamoto
               Joel Cracraft
     Oxford University Press   1991.

 Hope this helps
