At the BEN site we have BLAST, fastA and some other programs installed under an
EMBOSS "wrapper" program. In their present form these programs are not readily
installable elsewhere. When a year ago we dropped GCG (had become too
expensive !) I rushed to replace the lost functionality for our users and did
not consider portability.
I think it would be a good idea to distribute our BLAST and fastA wrappers as an
"Embassadir". I will start a conversation with the EMBOSS developement team
about what is necessary to make it work. I know that M. Sarachu from the
Argentina and J. Valverde from the Spanish EMBnet Nodes have our wrappers
running at their site. J. Valverde had started to make it portable, but I do not
know how far he got by know.
If you are in a hurry, I can send you the files in their present state. To make
it work you mainly need to edit the files and replace the paths of the programs
and the names of the databanks by what you have at your site. Note that, since
the EMBOSS programs are just "wrappers", you need in the first place the fastA
programs themselves properly installed and configured with a collection of
databanks in fastA format.
