EBI WU-BLAST with program and database selection prompts.
Run a BLAST analysis using the EBI's WSWUBlast service (see http://www.ebi.ac.uk/Tools/webservices/services/wublast). This workflow wraps the EBI_WU-BLAST workflow to provide a basic user interface which prompts for the required inputs: sequence, database, BLAST program and user e-mail. Other parameters (e.g. matrix, sort, gap penalties, etc.) are allowed to default. The values presented in the selection menus for the program and database are obtained from the service, using the provided meta-data operations: getPrograms and getDatabases.
Note: the WSWUBlast service used by this workflow is deprecated as of 21st September 2010 and should not be used in any new development. This service is will be retired during 2011. EBI's replacement WU-BLAST services (REST or SOAP) should be used instead.
