Change the default evalue

Hi everyone,

Is it possible to change the “default” e-value from 10 to 0.001?

I have tried to modify the formatter.rb file (add " -evalue 0.01" behind the “-out” parameter) but it did not work.


You want to add that to blast.rb.

formatter.rb is run after BLAST to convert output format.


I must add that if your installation is going to be used by others (as part of a genome portal for example), you should put up a text prominently on the site informing users that you have changed the default evalue and explaining why that is more appropriate. For example, you could do this by editing views/search.erb.


Hi Priyam,

Many thanks for your reply and kindly reminder.
