"t can make it much more obvious where changes / outliers are. you look down the column of red and see a blue indicates a different gene snip that can possibly indicate the faulty \ different gene sequence."

That is trivial to do in vim or XEMACS. Has been since the 16-bit days. On 4 megs of RAM. (Well, at least 8 meg for EMACS + 4 more for the GUI, of course ... and back then vim was Stevie & ran on an Atari ST.)
