Good news for everyone using my bloutminer script; it has received an update making it even more useful! Basically, I have added a function to extract the top N matches to each query (using the -n option), and I have also added the ability to output a filtered set of sequences in the same tabulated BLAST-format as the input came in. Thereby, bloutminer can now be used in more settings to easily filter out a subset in a large BLAST report (in tabular format, generated using the blastall -m 8 option). The script can be downloaded here:
