bp_seqpart.pl - Takes one or more sequence files and splits them into a number
of load balanced files.
bp_seqpart.pl -n <NUM_PARTS> [-h, -p <PREFIX>, -f <FORMAT>, -o <OUT_DIR>] <FILES...>
-n number of files to create through partitioning
-h this help message
-p prefix for all FASTA file names output, files are of the form <outdir>/<prefix>#.<format>
-f format of the files, defaults to FASTA but you can specify anything supported by SeqIO from BioPerl
-o output directory where to dump the split sequence files
Script wrapping SeqIO that allows partitioning of multiple sequence files into
near equal sized parts for later parallel processing. Even if you have 10
input files outputting to 10 files will balance the files to contain similar
total length of sequence. ID's are ignored when deciding on how to balance
