Check out www.DoubleTwist.com, it's a new portal that uses 'automated
research agents' to do different types of genetic analysis. For
example, compare DNA and protein sequences, find homologs, new gene
family members, longer cDNAs, etc. Eleven of their 13 research agents
are free now for a limited time. The agents do the work for you...you
don't have to know which databases to search or which algorithms to use,
it's all programmed in. Also, they keep monitoring the databases and
notify you by email if something new related to your sequence is found.
