  • Need help with BLAST Graphical Summary

    Hi,

    I'm pretty new to the Bioinformatics community, and I've just started working on a couple of projects. I need some help with BLAST - my scenario is:

    I have created a custom BLAST Database on my HDD, and I am BLASTing a few sequences against this database. Is there any way I could create something similar to the graphical output that BLAST Web UI generates as part of its output?

    Any suggestion would be welcome. Thanks!

    Unless things have changed in the past couple of years -- and I'll be the first to admit I do not keep up on all of the Blast changes -- you'll have to set up a WWW blast server of your own and then send your requests through a web browser. Not the most difficult thing to do but certainly a step above just running command line Blast.

        In the Korf, Yandell, Bedell BLAST book they included a perl script called blast-imager.pl. It takes a BLAST tabular output report and creates a graphic of the hits aligned to the query. Here is a description from the book on Google Books.

        You can download the code from the O'Reilly site (the first link above); use the "Download Example Code" link on the righthand side of the page. This tarball contains all of the code examples in the book including the blast-imager.pl script.

        I have use this script a couple of times. It is certainly nothing like the output from NCBI but is kinda, sorta almost like the output you can get from locally installed www-blast. The downside of the www-blast package is that it is based on the last release of the old BLAST codebase, now officially deprecated. There is no www release for BLAST+.

          This may be another option (the graphics would not look like that on NCBI site but they can be generated or so it appears).

            Best Practices for Single-Cell Sequencing Analysis
            by seqadmin



            While isolating and preparing single cells for sequencing was historically the bottleneck, recent technological advancements have shifted the challenge to data analysis. This highlights the rapidly evolving nature of single-cell sequencing. The inherent complexity of single-cell analysis has intensified with the surge in data volume and the incorporation of diverse and more complex datasets. This article explores the challenges in analysis, examines common pitfalls, offers...
