Hello everyone,

I have big alignments of RNA sequences (16-200 thousand sequences) and I need to cluster them by an identity threshold. Basically what I want to do is: - count identity of sequences distribution for these alignments, - after discovering this distribution, I would like to cluster these sequences by an identity threshold for example create file, with sequences from my current alignment with sequences that are identical at least at 50% and more, 60% and more ... and so on;

Just to clarify, I consider identity of sequence as number of positions that their nuclotides are identical for exaple:

seq1 ATA seq2 GTG seq1 and seq2 are identical at 33,3%.

My question is do You know any software or method that would help me to solve that issues?

Thank You all for reading this and for possible answers in advance.

And remove duplicates. ). I don't recollect software that would allow you to do what you are asking for in an iterative way.

BTW: What are you trying to achieve? Perhaps there is a different way to do it.

Reason to do this is described in this SA question:
