ID Type Title Doc
inputFile File [FASTA] Input file path

Optional, path to fasta file that should be loaded on Master startup. Alternatively, in CONVERT mode, the InterProScan 5 XML file to convert.

databases Directory
chunk_size Integer (Optional)
disableResidueAnnotation Boolean (Optional) Disables residue annotation

Optional, excludes sites from the XML, JSON output.

catOutputFileName String
seqtype (Optional) Sequence type

Optional, the type of the input sequences (dna/rna (n) or protein (p)). The default sequence type is protein.

outputFormat[] (Optional) output format

Optional, case-insensitive, comma separated list of output formats. Supported formats are TSV, XML, JSON, GFF3, HTML and SVG. Default for protein sequences are TSV, XML and GFF3, or for nucleotide sequences GFF3 and XML.

../utils/fasta_chunker.cwl (CommandLineTool)
split FASTA by number of records

based upon code by developers from EMBL-EBI

../tools/InterProScan/InterProScan-v5.cwl (CommandLineTool)
InterProScan: protein sequence classifier

InterProScan is the software package that allows sequences (protein and nucleic) to be scanned against InterPro's signatures. Signatures are predictive models, provided by several different databases, that make up the InterPro consortium.

This tool description is using a Docker container tagged as version v5.30-69.0.

Documentation on how to run InterProScan 5 can be found here:

../utils/concatenate.cwl (CommandLineTool)
Redirecting Multiple Files Contain in a Single File

The cat (short for “concatenate“) command is one of the most frequently used command in Linux/Unix like operating systems. cat command allows us to create single or multiple files, view contain of file, concatenate files and redirect output in terminal or files.
