Hi all,

I used to use an old blast version (2.2.21) and now I'm moving to the latest blast+ version (2.2.25).

The thing is I don't know which options in the 2.2.25 version are the options equivalent to -F and -I options in the 2.2.21 one.

Anyone knows? and anyone knows where I could get the manual for the blast 2.2.21 or a similar version?

Thanks!

Marina

From: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK1763/#CmdLineAppsManual.3_Quick_start

The easiest way to get started using these command line applications is by means of the legacy_blast.pl PERL script which is bundled along with the BLAST+ applications. To utilize this script, simply prefix it to the invocation of the C toolkit BLAST command line application and append the --path option pointing to the installation directory of the BLAST+ applications. For example, instead of using blastall -i query -d nr -o blast.out, use legacy_blast.pl blastall -i query -d nr -o blast.out --path /opt/blast/bin

Blast: -F -F Filter query sequence (DUST with blastn, SEG with others) [String]

Blast+: -dust: Arguments to DUST filtering algorithm (use ‘no’ to disable).

Blast: -l Restrict search of database to list of GI's [String] Optional

Blast+: -gilist: File containing a list of GIs to restrict the BLAST database to search. The expect values in the BLAST results are based upon the sequences actually searched and not on the underlying database.
