Hi there! My name is Lance Lafontaine.

I am a student at Concordia University in software engineering, with a previous degree in molecular biology. I enjoy all things tech, science and startups, but I especially love web development, open source software, and camping (outdoors).

Chat with me @LanceLafontaine or lance.lafontaine92@gmail.com, I love meeting new people in virtual and physical settings.

@terdon On second thought, would doing a regular pairwise alignment with the reverse-complement of only of the sequences yield the same result?

Sorry for the confusion: looking for regions of high complementarity. Will edit question in a moment.
