FEEDBACK

    Mailing Lists

User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other Bioperl modules. Send your comments and suggestions preferably to one of the Bioperl mailing lists. Your participation is much appreciated.

    Support

Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:

bioperl-l@bioperl.org

rather than to the module maintainer directly. Many experienced and reponsive experts will be able look at the problem and quickly address it. Please include a thorough description of the problem with code and data examples if at all possible.

APPENDIX

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _

    new



 Title   : new
 Usage   : my $obj = Bio::Tools::Run::StandAloneBlast->new();
 Function: Builds a newBio::Tools::Run::StandAloneBlast object
 Returns : Bio::Tools::Run::StandAloneBlast
 Args    : -quiet => boolean # make program execution quiet
           -_READMETHOD => BLAST (default, synonym SearchIO) || blast_pull
                           # the parsing method, case insensitive



Essentially all BLAST parameters can be set via StandAloneBlast.pm. Some of the most commonly used parameters are listed below. All parameters have defaults and are optional except for -p in those programs that have it. For a complete listing of settable parameters, run the relevant executable BLAST program with the option - as in blastall - Note that the input parameters (-i, -j, -input) should not be set directly by you: this module sets them when you call one of the executable methods.

Blastall



  -p  Program Name [String]
        Input should be one of "blastp", "blastn", "blastx",
        "tblastn", or "tblastx".
  -d  Database [String] default = nr
        The database specified must first be formatted with formatdb.
        Multiple database names (bracketed by quotations) will be accepted.
        An example would be -d "nr est"
  -e  Expectation value (E) [Real] default = 10.0
  -o  BLAST report Output File [File Out]  Optional,
            default = ./blastreport.out ; set by StandAloneBlast.pm            
  -S  Query strands to search against database (for blast[nx], and tblastx). 3 is both, 1 is top, 2 is bottom [Integer]
            default = 3



Blastpgp (including Psiblast)



  -j  is the maximum number of rounds (default 1; i.e., regular BLAST)
  -h  is the e-value threshold for including sequences in the
            score matrix model (default 0.001)
  -c  is the "constant" used in the pseudocount formula specified in the paper (default 10)
  -B  Multiple alignment file for PSI-BLAST "jump start mode"  Optional
  -Q  Output File for PSI-BLAST Matrix in ASCII [File Out]  Optional



rpsblast



  -d  Database [String] default = (none - you must specify a database)
        The database specified must first be formatted with formatdb.
        Multiple database names (bracketed by quotations) will be accepted.
        An example would be -d "Cog Smart"
  -e  Expectation value (E) [Real] default = 10.0
  -o  BLAST report Output File [File Out]  Optional,
            default = ./blastreport.out ; set by StandAloneBlast.pm



Bl2seq



  -p  Program name: blastp, blastn, blastx. For blastx 1st argument should be nucleotide [String]
    default = blastp
  -o  alignment output file [File Out] default = stdout
  -e  Expectation value (E) [Real]  default = 10.0
  -S  Query strands to search against database (blastn only).  3 is both, 1 is top, 2 is bottom [Integer]
    default = 3

              $blast_report = $factory->blastall($seq_array_ref);
 Returns : Reference to a Blast object containing the blast report.
 Args    : Name of a file or Bio::Seq object or an array of
           Bio::Seq object containing the query sequence(s).
           Throws an exception if argument is not either a string
           (eg a filename) or a reference to a Bio::Seq object
           (or to an array of Seq objects).  If argument is string,
           throws exception if file corresponding to string name can
           not be found.

           object one of whose elements is the query and a "mask" to
           determine how BLAST should select scoring matrices see
           DESCRIPTION above for more details.
