Default value set by BLAST program or task

Since R2024a


A bioinfo.blastplus.Default object is a placeholder value for some properties of the BLAST options objects to indicate that the corresponding BLAST program or task sets the default value of the property.

For example, consider the blastn query program. The default WordSize for its blastn task is 11, while the default WordSize for the megablast task is 28. For a list of default values for each query program and corresponding tasks, see the Appendices section of the BLAST+ manual BLAST Command Line Applications User Manual.


The getCommand function of the corresponding BLAST options object does not translate properties that are set to bioinfo.blastplus.Default even when you set IncludeAll=true.


Use bioinfo.blastplus.Default to create the object.
