Hello, I'm new here, but I can't find answer in other topics.
I want to run blast nucelotide, align two sequences using blast (megablast, all options default) amd check their % ident. I have installed locally - Standalone NCBI BLAST+ (2.6). I've got Python 2.7, and installed BioPython, but after reading Biopython Tutorial (http://www.biopython.org/DIST/docs/tutorial/Tutorial.html) I still can't handle with this.
Could anyone show me example of using BioPython with local blast?
thank you with subprocess.check_output() this is perfect for me
What does the
subprocessfunction do exactly? I looked up the docs, but couldnt figure out. Why wouldnt using BLAST from Biopython be a good idea?
it basically lets you interact with commandline things from within a script (command = what you would type into the commandline, formatted as a list). Biopython BLAST is basically the same except its easier to work with, but your limited to whatever options they put in to their wrapper function
