Abstract: BLAST and Repeat Masker Parser
(BRM-Parser) is a service that provides users a unified platform for easy
analysis of relatively large outputs of BLAST (Basic Local Alignment Search
Tool) and RepeatMasker programs. BLAST Summary feature of BRM-Parser summarizes
BLAST outputs, which can be filtered using user defined thresholds for hit
length, percentage identity and E-value and can be sorted by query or subject
coordinates and length of the hit. It also provides a tool that merges BLAST
hits which satisfy user-defined criteria for hit length and gap between hits.
The RepeatMasker Summary feature uses the RepeatMasker alignment as an input
file and calculates the frequency and proportion of mutations in copies of
repeat elements, as identified by the RepeatMasker. Both features can be run
through a GUI or can be executed via command line using the standalone version.
