Among other functions, SEDA allows you to:

  • Filter sequences based on different criteria (including text patterns).
  • Translate nucleic acid sequences into amino acid sequences.
  • Execute BLAST analyses.
  • Remove duplicated sequences.
  • Sort, merge, split or reformat files.

For developers

Programmers can take advantage of the SEDA core to develop new operations to process FASTA files.

In addition, SEDA has a plugin-based architecture, so new functions can be added to the SEDA GUI through plugins.


SEDA is a multi-platform application, this means that there are available distributions for Windows and GNU/Linux based operating systems.

SEDA is also open-source with license GPLv3.


A dockerized version of SEDA for Linux systems is available at Docker Hub.

In addition, the standalone version of SEDA can run the third-party dependencies using Docker images.
