Galaxy workflow for counting species of top BLAST hits.

This is an example workflow using the Galaxy wrappers for NCBI BLAST+, see https://github.com/peterjc/galaxy_blast and http://dx.doi.org/10.1101/014043

This Galaxy workflow (file blast_top_hit_species.ga) is intended for an initial assessment of a transcriptome assembly to give a crude indication of any major contamination present based on the species of the top BLAST hit of 1000 representative sequences.

Development of this workflow is under version control at https://github.com/peterjc/galaxy_blast/tree/master/workflows/blast_top_hit_species with an in depth README file, which includes a suggested public test dataset with sample output.
