BLAST pipeline

The example below splits a FASTA file into chunks and executes for each of them a BLAST query in a parallel manner. Then, all the sequences for the top hits are collected and merged to a single result file.

Try it in your computer

In order to run this pipeline in your computer you will required:

Install Nextflow entering the following command in the shell terminal:

$ curl -fsSL | bash

Then launch the pipeline execution using this command:

$ ./nextflow run blast-example -with-docker 

It will automatically download the pipeline Github repository and the associated Docker images, thus the first execution can requires few minutes to complete depending you network connection.
