running blastx
Answer
8/26/13 9:00 PM
Hello,

I could use a little help learning how to run blastx on stampede. I am struggling to learn the best way to run the program to take advantage of many cores (including the co-processors).

I have a local database download (nr) and I have a multifasta file containing ~100,000 sequences.

It looks like blastx version 2.2.28+ is already installed on Stampede. mpiblast is also installed, although I have no experience running it.

As I understand it, the most resource-utilizing way to run it would be to run it on both the co-processor and the node, I'm just not sure how to do so.

Thank you for any pointers,

-jt
