Kablammo: an interactive, web-based BLAST results visualizer

Bioinformatics. 2015 Apr 15;31(8):1305-6. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btu808. Epub 2014 Dec 5.


Motivation: Kablammo is a web-based application that produces interactive, vector-based visualizations of sequence alignments generated by BLAST. These visualizations can illustrate many features, including shared protein domains, chromosome structural modifications and genome misassembly.

Availability and implementation: Kablammo can be used at http://kablammo.wasmuthlab.org. For a local installation, the source code and instructions are available under the MIT license at http://github.com/jwintersinger/kablammo.
