RealBasic is real cool tool for fast GUI apps (really...). But the 
language by itself is a bit limited compared to Python - limited OO 
support, lack of dynamism, no functionnal possibility... Well, it's a 
pretty good basic, but still a basic !-)

I don't know much about DNA sequence analysis, but I guess you'll find 
Python a better choice for this kind of stuff.

my 2 cents...
