Hello, newbie here!
I have a blast result file in format 6, with the 12 columns and tab separated if I'm not mistaken.
I want to sort it by the first column. From some blogs online I tried a simple command, but the one I did kept only the first column and erased the rest. I tried this:
sort -k 1 sample1_blast.out > sample1_blast_join_try.txt
Is there a better and more correct way of doing this?
