One of the most basic needs in bioinformatics is comparative sequence analysis. We provide services and training in a wide variety of topics related to sequence analysis, including database searching (e.g. with BLAST, BLAT, and HMMER), pairwise and multiple alignment (e.g. via BioPython modules and tools like Muscle and ClustalW), and reference-guided alignment (e.g. BWA, TopHat/Bowtie).
