Sequence Alignment & Comparison
Mathematica includes state-of-the-art algorithms for sequence alignment and comparison, capable of handling strings and lists containing very large numbers of elements.
SequenceAlignment find alignments between sequences, allowing insertion and deletion
LongestCommonSubsequence find the longest contiguous subsequence in common
LongestCommonSequence find the longest sequence in common, perhaps disjoint
Nearest find sequences nearest with respect to a distance measure
FindClusters find clusters of sequences with respect to a distance measure
GenomeLookup find exact matches with human and other genomes
