Hi Thomas,

Full support allowing making your own database with taxid
support will be more complicated - but using databases setup
via the *.loc file (e.g. a downloaded copy of the NR database)
ought not to be too complicated. I think we just need to add
another integer parameter under the advanced options to
set the -window_masker_taxid value. Would that be enough
for your needs?

I wrote the NCBI BLAST+ wrappers but this is starting to
turn into a team effort. There is a lot of other work in progress
on extending the Galaxy BLAST+ wrappers further - I'm
setting up a meeting with the other people already working
on this during the GCC2013 - perhaps this should be a listed
BoF session?
