Bulk Blast 2 Sequences

Community rating: ?????

Blasting multiple sets of query and subject sequences.

Overview of tool

  • Input for this app are two directories/folders (one designated as a query folder, the other as subject folder), each folder with multiple files, each file with a single nucleotide sequence. Each file in the query folder will contain a single nucleotide sequence in FASTA format. Each file in the subject folder will contain a single nucleotide sequence in FASTA format. Each query sequence file in the query sequence folder should have a matching subject sequence file in the subject folder and vice versa. 
  • The app also takes as input a pairs list, a tab delimited file of the format: "queryfilename,chr,start,stop,strand,gene,orth,subjectfilename", with each line referring to one of the files in the query folder and to its corresponding subject file in the subject folder. The chr, start, stop, strand and gene info in the pairs list refer to the genomic location of the feature which is being blasted. (This is in the context of when you are trying to identify the presence of a feature in its expected syntenic position.
  • The output generated is a blast report for each pair of query and subject sequences.
