Synopsis
  # Build a Seg factory
# $paramfile is the full path to the seg binary file
my @params = ('PROGRAM',$paramfile);
my $factory = Bio::Tools::Run::Seg->new($param);
# Pass the factory a Bio::Seq object # @feats is an array of Bio::SeqFeature::Generic objects my @feats = $factory->run($seq);
Description
Seg is a program which identifies low complexity regions in proteins.
It was developed by Wootton and Federhen at NCBI.

User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other
Bioperl modules. Send your comments and suggestions preferably to one
of the Bioperl mailing lists. Your participation is much appreciated.

Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:

bioperl-l@bioperl.org

rather than to the module maintainer directly. Many experienced and
reponsive experts will be able look at the problem and quickly
address it. Please include a thorough description of the problem
with code and data examples if at all possible.
