Bioinformatics tool for sequence analysis

In present-day genetics, molecular biology, biomedicine and other areas of the life sciences, computers are used for studying biotic systems and bioprocesses. The discipline involved, bioinformatics, operates through accessing and analysis of information accumulated in formatted databases. For this, MATLAB® offers a specially designed tool – the Bioinformatics toolbox™ containing a set of specialized commands, some of which are discussed in this chapter.
