Displaying bigger results


I’m trying to blast a sequence that gives a few more results, but the browser seems to not be able to display the about 400mb result set it gets send from sequenceserver.

Some questions there: is this browser specific? I have tried current versions of chrome and firefox (on windows).

And: Why is the browser even getting 400MB of data to display? I cannot imagine any reason why the browser should get the whole blank results and not just an overview of data where the client then selects on what to display in detail or download. Or am I doing something wrong?

Would it help to run sequenceserver behind apache/nginx in such cases?


It’s not browser specific. You should use the -evalue and -max_target_seqs options to restrict the results.
