Description Martin Mokrejš 2009-12-03 20:04:03 UTC
It seems to me seg-based filtering or low-complexity regions in BLAST cannot work. I see using:

$ strings /usr/bin/blastpgp | less
[cut]
BLASTFILTER
seg 
%s%s%s%s%s
/usr/ncbi/blast/filter
Call to seg failed.
^z
$ ls -la /usr/ncbi/blast/filter
ls: cannot access /usr/ncbi/blast/filter: No such file or directory
$ ls -la /usr/share/ncbi

So what should we do here? There are no filter installed. What does upstream intend? Do one need to download them seperately?
