If you need help with genome analysis, you might want to take a look at VISTA, a newly revamped site from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California. Its set of features lets you compare genomes from the site's collection of nine species or plug in your own sequences. Try the mVISTA browser to highlight similar and different regions in, say, a snippet of human DNA compared to that of a chimp's. Another tool locates attachment sites for transcription factors, which are proteins that flick genes up and down.
