bp_dbsplit - script to split an input set of database(s) into smaller pieces
bp_dbsplit.PLS --size 50 [-i inputfile] [-if inputformat] [-of outputformat] [--prefix outputprefix] [ < file1 file 2 OR file1 file2]
This script will take as input a list of filenames or a single file or from STDIN a sequence database and split the database into separate files of X numbers of sequences. You specify X with the "--size/-s" parameter. The input and output sequence format is any that is supported by bioperl (fasta,embl,genbank,gcg, swissprot, etc).
You can specify the input data either as a single file with -i filename, or as a single file as an argument like
% bp_dbsplit file1 file2
or as a list of sequence data with
% cat file1 file2 file3 | bp_dbsplit
You'll want to use the "--prefix" to specify what the output prefix will be.
