interested in trying to mask out general repeats in a genome of
approximately 10^8 bases. I've noticed that RepeatMasker has libraries
of known repeats for different organisms, but I'm interested in a general

. Additionally, since it appears that the RepeatMasker web server at UW
will only accept up to 100kb, a local installation of the software would
