The GenBank ® database is perhaps one of the most important repositories of genetic information. A researcher working in the field of genomic authentication must therefore be equipped with the skills needed to competently access the required information from this database whilst ultimately contributing their own data to it. This chapter presents a practical guide to using GenBank ® to search for sequences, search and align unknown sequences using BLAST, and uploading and maintaining your own sequences. This chapter also details some other software helpful in sequence manipulation. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
