biosql will certainly store your sequences and annotation, but the 
multiple sequence alignments will be a challenge at least, meaning 
nobody has tried it yet, and it wasn't designed with this capability in 

You've probably heard about chado. I dont actually know to which extent 
it is prepared to store multiple sequence alignments, but it may be 
worth checking out and/or asking on the gmod mailing list.
