I have a number of collaborators working on different RNA-seq/genome projects. Each group has its own genes assembled from RNA-seq, on which they like to run BLAST and other analysis. Also, some resources are shared between multiple groups. Finally, some of those resources will go public, when the papers get accepted.
I like to provide password-protected BLAST access for each group, and also provide shared BLAST access for shared data sets. So far, I have been able to handle these by creating multiple BLAST sites or password-protecting entire sites for shared collaboration. Now, with so much data coming in under all kinds of complex associations (between collaborators, not genes), I am somewhat lost.
Is there a software that allows setting up one BLAST site and creates password-protected access for different groups? I have to make sure only group A sees genomic set a, only group B sees genomic set b, group A and B see genomic set c, group B and C see genomic set d and NSA spooks can access everything.
Also, BLAST is only one kind of tool, but eventually I need to do the same for several other tasks biologists like to do on their data. Please feel free to suggest web-packages you know about for other password-protected group sharing.
