Unique Numerical Protein Representation

: The PIR staff have had several inquiries recently about a supposedly large
: number of redundant sequences in the PIR database.  These questions arose
: from an apparently common misinterpretation of a table in a message posted
: to GENBANK-BB by Warren Gish at the NCBI on 13 May 1992.

How were these comparisons done?  Is there a PD program available that will
eliminate redundant sequences in databases by sequence identity?  If so, I
am interested in getting a copy of it.  I have been meaning to write one
myself, but never seem to get around to it.
