  • Blast+: mouse-over graphics

    This is yet another iteration of a topic that has been raised over the years. Does anyone know of a good replacement for the mouse-over graphics produced by the (aging) wwwblast and also found on the NCBI web pages.

    My sysadmin has put his foot down and has told me to move from using wwwblast to using the modern blast+ suite. I use blast+ when I do not need the graphical mouse-over output but there are times, especially when focusing in on a handful of sequences that the mouse-over is useful.

    NCBI itself does not appear to offer a way to produce the mouse-over. Blast+ HTML output produces a nice web page but without graphics. NCBI's pages themselves produce the mouse-over using CSS, Javascript and a (seemingly proprietary) program which I can mostly but not completely replicate.

    Non-NCBI programs include 'blast2html'. That program blows up on blastx output as well as reference names with '>' in them. It also can spit out a lot of warning messages on some blast+ output. Thus I am distrustful of it as a general solution. Other similar programs have come and gone through the years and so far I have yet to find a good wwwblast replacement that can be used in an automated pipeline.

    So any solutions out there?

    You probably have done so already but have you asked Blast support if they have a solution?

      Yes I asked NCBI. Their reply was " ... . Unfortunately, there is no viable option [to wwwblast] ..."

          Thanks for that link @Roy.

          Looks interesting AND it is free for organizations.

            This might be another option, looks good to me but have not attempted a test installation yet.
