  • Question: Is it possible to get local blast output directly in Biopython, without mak

    Hi

    I am currently filtering through a large amount of reads from a 454 machine. I would like to blast every read against a local blast database and check if the sequence is indeed from a targeted genus/species and not a contaminant. For that I would like to get a direct output to python, so I can read it directly and filter it out if the top matches aren't from the same genus or if the score is too low.

    Code:
    for seq in SeqIO.parse(fasta_file, "fasta"):
            counter +=1
            blast_cline = NcbiblastnCommandline(query="G:\\454 dataset\\new2.fasta", db="database", evalue=0.001, outfmt=5, out="G:\\454 dataset\\blast2.xml")
            stdout, stderr = blast_cline()
            print(stdout,stderr) 
            if counter == 1: break
    Also i would like to give the query sequence from parsing through the file, as it stands it gets the query from the "new2,fasta" file. The counter and the break are temporarily there, till I find a way to get it to accept the seq variable as its query input.

    How could I get a stdout output from the local blast? Also is it possible to give the query input a variable and not a file?

      Please don't cross-post the same question to multiple forums (without adding the links), as you waste people's time. There is a lot of overlap between the posters here and on BioStars.

        Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
        by seqadmin


        Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...

        Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
        by seqadmin


        Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
