You can't do it directly without using a DNA sequencer and some software to put the snippets together.

If the goal is to show it on a computer then someone may have already sequenced it for you and it might be available online.
Thanks for the information. Now I've a little bit more data for searching it. :thumbs:

Hunt around at www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov

Tons of databases there. There is a learning curve involved when trying to find and then analyze the data contained, but it isn't too difficult.
