RepeatMasker Web Server
RepeatMasker screens DNA sequences in FASTA format against the Repbase-derived RepeatMasker library of repetitive elements or against the Dfam database
and returns a masked query sequence ready for database
searches. RepeatMasker also generates a table annotating the masked regions.
