Duplicate Sequence Removal

Purpose: Given an alignment or set of unaligned nucleotide or protein sequences, this tool compares the sequences and eliminates any duplicates or very similar sequences, thus producing a set of unique sequences.

Note: This program needs an alignment. If your sequences are NOT aligned, please uncheck the box at the bottom of the Input block. Adding an alignment step slows the program down dramatically.

For more details, see ElimDupes Explanation.
