Hello

I have the following BLAST table format output:

GRMZM2G5555   GRMZM2G5555   100.00  5197    0       0       2886    8082    2886    8082    0.0     9880
GRMZM2G5555   GRMZM2G5555   100.00  1418    0       0       1       1418    1       1418    0.0     2769
GRMZM2G5555   GRMZM2G5555   100.00  1377    0       0       1445    2821    1445    2821    0.0     2688
GRMZM2G5555   GRMZM2G3333   99.13   1268    9       2       1445    2711    759     2025    0.0     2369
GRMZM2G5555   GRMZM2G3333   99.17   724     6       0       687     1410    1       724     0.0     1388
GRMZM2G5555   GRMZM2G2222   95.73   1310    23      8       4045    5333    647     1944    0.0     2068
GRMZM2G5555   GRMZM2G1111   96.41   668     15      5       4677    5342    8063    7403    0.0     1031
GRMZM2G5555   GRMZM2G1111   95.52   67      3       0       5428    5494    3703    3637    1e-21    109

I ran BLAST on a FASTA file against the same FASTA file. So the first hit will be itself. Now the BLAST output is providing several different HSPs. But I wanted all the HSPs to be combined and display as one, so that I can find the whole coverage of subject on query. Can anyone suggest me how to achieve this or a place to find the scripts for this problem.

thanks

BLAST stands for Basic Local Alignment Search Tool, which is exactly what it does: searching for local alignments between two sequences.

What you seem to want is a global alignment. There are many tools available that do that for you, however, BLAST is not one of them.

I suggest you get the sequence IDs from your file and use e.g. CLUSTALW, MUSCLE, or T-COFFEE to globally align them.

To answer your question (but not your title) I suggest using BLAT, which automatically chains HSPs from the same target as part of its PSL format.

Maybe you could try with the pairwise format instead (flag -m 0 I think). I think that in this format all the HSPs that make up a hit are all represented together so you'd need only to look at the query start position and end position to get the whole coverage.

Anyway, if you don't mind to use Java and XML format, I'd recommend to take a look at this Java project: Era7BioinfoXML. It's got a set of XML wrapper classes based on Jdom library. In particular the class Hsp.java is a model of the HSP element, using the methods getQueryFrom and getQueryTo you can get the positions and thus calculate the coverage.

Here you are a sample of the pairwise format
