[Bioperl-l] Blast reports and XML
Thu, 18 Oct 2001 13:53:46 -0500
I had a query about using xml/xsl/xslt to get interesting bits from blast
output. I have stylesheets to get info from the blast reports, and I am
using them with Biojava. GCG and ncbi/standalone blast output XML is the
same (so it appears anyway). With XSL stylesheets, since I can't make up my
mind, I can use both Perl and java (though the Perl XSLT support I haven't
really tried, seems new from the documentation), and decide later if I like
java or Perl better. The two different blast modules for bioperl are very
good, and I wouldn't imagine replacing them, this is just another method for
doing the same thing. I liked that I could use standaloneblast in Perl,
and then use any sort of xml processing I wanted.
What are other opinions on this?
