Hi guys,

We recently installed NCBI BLAST + to our local Galaxy instance and now we need to provide the possibility to filter/mask … by taxon id (taxid) using the command line option (-window_masker_taxid) of BLAST (cf. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK1763/) before the  job will be performed in one task.

However searching in the documentation and the mailing list, I did not find anything about this.
So it would be great to provide the possibility to subselect by taxid (e.g. NCBI BLAST server http://blast.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Blast.cgi) by changing the BLAST integration.

We believe this could be of common interest. It would be great if anybody could comment on this. 

Thanks a lot, Thomas
