Hi All

Our lab has decided to give up aligning sequences by eye and will move into 
the computer age.  Some questions:

1)  Is this a good idea? Or is aligning sequences by eye still useful?

2)  Which programs are recommended for aligning sequences?

3) What sorts of hidden assumptions are there in these programs?

Any advice would be welcome
