tool for comparing 2 DNA sequences
 
Hi,

Can someone recommend a good tool to compare the 2 DNA sequences? I am trying to figure out the sequence differences between 2 strains. Also, does anyone know what (T) following the name mean? (e.g. Staphylococcus epidermidis (T)).

Thanks!

You may use ClustalW hosted by EBI...it performs Seqeunce Alignment

DNAman or blast2 on NCBI-Blast could do your job.

Clustal W is best tool for you. Hope it helps!

It depends what kind of an alignment you want to perform - local or global. The best tools for local alignment are BLAST2seq, water (Smith–Waterman algorithm), matcher or supermatcher. For a global alignment you may choose among ClustalW, needle (The Needleman–Wunsch algorithm) or stretcher.
