This script can be used to convert a tabular blast output to a bed file.
- The input file should be generated with the outfmt 6 or 7 flag.
- If the input file name has a ‘.bls’ file extension, it will be replaced by ‘.bed’ for the output file. Otherwise, the output file will be <inputfile>.bed
- The score is always set to 0
The resulting bed file has the format:
<subjectID> <start> <end> <QueryID> <score> <strand>
