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
Ackert Hall
Kansas State University
Manhattan KS  66506
(913) 532-6641

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 
ncbi.nlm.nih.gov.

Hope this helps!
