Not sure what the thread is here but I can make a guess. I assume you
are referring to the untimely demise of WUBlast and the resurrection of
it as a commercial project by the folks at Advanced Biocomputing (
ABBlast )? We are aware. I have been working on fixing some
incompatibilities in RepeatMasker/RepeatModeler/RepeatProteinMask etc..
and should have something out soon ( probably in a week or so ). Warren
assures me that you can still get ABBlast free ( or cheaply ) under an
academic license. Please let me know if you have other questions about RM.
