I wonder if it is possible to use a progress bar (or percentage) to measure the time it takes blast to run in my python script. If so, how to do it? I would like it to appear in the terminal so that the users of the script know that it is going to take time and they don't desperate.
What I could find involves loops, and in my case I don't have one (it is a single line):
blast = NcbipsiblastCommandline(query=sys.argv, db="my_db", evalue=0.0001, outfmt=5, out=name, num_alignments=100)
