Gene sequence data is the most abundant type of data available, and if you're interested in analyzing it, you'll find a wealth of computational methods and tools to help you. In fact, finding the data is not the challenge at all; rather it is dealing with the plethora of flat file formats used to process the sequence entries and trying to remember what their specific field codes mean. If you survive by surrounding yourself with well-thumbed hard copies of readme files or remembering exactly where to look for the details when you need them, then Sequence Analysis in a Nutshell: A Guide to Common Tools and Databases is for you. This book is a handy resource, as well as an invaluable reference, for anyone who needs to know about the practical aspects and mechanics of sequence analysis.
