If you are serious about sequence analysis, you probably already know of this site. The Swiss EMBnet Node Server takes no prisoners. A quick glance at its opening page provides a view of a jaw-dropping collection of online tools, links, and even courses taught at various European institutions. Analysis tools include iPCR (virtual PCR), sequence alignments, protein domain predictions, a promoter database, signal sequence searches, and access to downloadable databases and information by FTP. There is extensive documentation available and the collection of links is superb. Last, a section called Contacts provides (in addition to contact information) a listing of jobs and access to email lists. There’s something for everyone at the Swiss EMBnet Node Server.
