A general method to evaluate the accuracy of protein sequence alignment
with very low sequence identity. 

sc_rate is a perl program which produces position specific 
reliability prediction for any protein sequence alignment.

It can be used for 2 purposes:

1) When you want to have a crude estimation of how bad
   all the alignments in a huge scale sequence alignemnt.
   By running it to all the alignements and getting the
   average of the index, it is possible to have a rough
   estimation on the quality of alignment. 

2) When any sequence alignment  is too difficult to tell.
   Either because you are not an expert or the sequence
   similarity you expect is very very low.
