// Reduce BLAST XML size?
// June 15, 2011 at 10:59 PM

I have a really large BLAST XML file - something like 30gb in size. 

I'd like to reduce it so I can run through it quicker with Biopython. 

Is there a way to reduce the file by keeping something like the top 25 hits based on bitscore for each query.

Preferably I'd like to do with Python/Biopython. 


// running tests/tools in MTAP platform
// June 14, 2011 at 12:46 PM

My goal is to run different tools and compare the results in MTAP.
Tools include SLIMFINDER, D-STAR, MEME, DILIMOT - input known linear motif sequences and get the results.
How do i run these tests in MTAP? What files do i need to edit? What are the command line options that will do this?
