    I don't remember... That effort has been lost to the sands of time. But in the end I think I just switched to the command-line version of Blast2GO and that mostly did what I was looking for.

    Thanks, but as I've explained, this does not at all accomplish what I'm trying to do. (And the number of rows would overwhelm Excel in any case.)

    I'll just write a bioperl script.

    Bueller_007,

    In addition to tboothby's suggestion, which looks simple enough, a more complex way is to convert your xml file into a tab-based format. Then you can open it in excel and you will see the results right away - the contigs with no hits will only have the first column (contig ID).

    Yes, thanks. I can do this quite easily with grep. But as I said, what I wish to do is annotate (i.e., rename contigs) with BLAST hits and put them in one file, then remove contigs that lack BLAST hits (i.e., place them in another file).

    To find blast queries WITHOUT hits, try something like grep? The -A option selects lines above your search term, while -B selects lines after the search term. You will have to look at your xml file and count the number of lines above and below the 'No hits found' line and input them into the command line below.

    grep -A -B 'No hits found' /path/to/your/file > /path/to/output/file

    If you want to get all the blast results that DID have hits try the command below (the -v selects the inverse of your search pattern and options):

    grep -v -A -B 'No hits found' /path/to/your/file > /path/to/output/file

    What format are your blast output files in?
    XML format generated with
    Code:
    >blastx -db caniformia_refseq_protein  -query mergedtrinity.fa -out blast_records.xml -evalue 1e-5 -outfmt 5 -show_gis -num_alignments 1 -num_descriptions 1 -num_threads 32

    Yes, I have a local database. But I don't want to annotate with GO info yet. I only want to sort out contigs that do and do not have blastx hits.

    For B2G are you using a local database?

    I run have been doing some annotation with B2G using a local database I setup and it works pretty well. I generate input blast.xml files using Stand Alone Blast first. Then run that through B2Gpipe.

    The BLASTing is the part that takes the longest, the actual annotation goes very quickly (around a day for ~60k sequences).

  • Annotate contigs with BLAST hit names; remove contigs with no hit

    Hi. I'm wondering if anyone knows a tool I can use to annotate contigs with BLAST hit names (and remove contigs that don't have BLAST hits).

    I have an input .fa file containing the contigs and an output .xml file from blastx.

    For smaller input files, I've been using the GUI version of BLAST2GO, but it can't really handle more than 20,000 BLAST hits at once and my newest fasta file contains many hundreds of thousands of contigs.

    I could write my own bioperl script, but I wouldn't trust that it would work under all circumstances. Is there anything out there?


    Thanks!

    ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells.

    Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
    by seqadmin
    Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

    The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes
