SEG is built into BLAST to mask low-complexity regions in protein sequences before doing the sequence search. However, I don't want to use BLAST, I just want to mask my proteins. Does anyone know of a stand-alone version, or of a program that does something similar?
Interesting. For some reason this was not included in the BLAST distribution that was installed on my system. Perhaps this is a difference between BLAST and BLAST+.
I think in the old days, wu-blast used to come with these too. And on NCBI version it was part of the NCBI toolkit.
