PROTEIN SEQUENCE (maximum length 2000)
A top line containining ">something" will be thrown out, if included.


We use a fast algorithm to search for repeating fragments within protein sequences. The technique is based on an extension of the Smith-Waterman algorithm that allows the calculation of sub-optimal alignments of a sequence against itself. We are able to estimate the statistical significance of all sub-optimal alignment scores. We also rapidly determine the length of the repeating fragment and the number of times it is found in a sequence.
