Geneious is a friendly tools, specially for who never work with any genetic analysis. The software have an intuitive graphic interface and you can do a simple analyze like gene alignment and a modern analysis like a de novo alignment. Also, the software are interconnected with NCBI and you can use BLASTn (for example) without exit the software.
