There is a DNA and protein sequence analysis software package (called Seqaid) which is
distributed as shareware. It may do much of what you want. It is distributed by:
D.J. Roufa and D.D. Rhoads
Division of Biology
Kansas State University
Manhattan KS 66506
You can try downloading it from:
NETSERV at EMBL.BITNET or GENBANK-SERVER at UHNIX2.UH.EDU
Another type of program allows you to build evolutionary trees of relatedness among a group of
sequences. I don't know where to get any of them as shareware or freeware, but I recall one
being titled PAUP. Not sure where to get it, I'm afraid.
Are you aware of ENTREZ, the sequence database available online from NCBI? You can use a web
browser to reach it at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/ or download a version of it from
Hope this helps!
