Tantan website  

Tantan is a tool to mask simple regions (low complexity and short-period tandem repeats) in DNA, RNA, and protein sequences.

The aim of tantan is to prevent false predictions when searching for homologous regions between two sequences. Simple repeats often align strongly to each other, causing false homology predictions.
