Recently, I was trying to identify homologous genes in different genomes using genBlastG, however when I run it with default parameters, it generates a huge (~4G) empty output file (.gblast extension with other string attached, i.e., XX.gblast_1.1c_2.3_s1_0_16_1). Other intermediates file seems right, such as .blast and .report files.
I tried so many times with various modifications but the problem still exists. Does anyone know about this problem?
Hey, I also met the same problem, but I found it is not the empty file, I filter the output file with
grep '^MY_FASTA_ID' output_file | less, waiting for a moment, and then you can see the file name. I do not know why
less output_filecannot see the contents. The method works for me. Hope it is helpful! BTW, do you know why the output file is so huge? My hard drive is almost full...
