[Bioperl-l] Blasting 100kb against dbEST?

Hi all,

I'm working on a project that needs to BLAST 100kb genomic fragments
against large DBs like dbEST.  Now, 100kb is a big query, and I was
hoping that there might be a standard way to break this apart,
parallelize the BLAST and then reassembly/collate the results.  Is
there a standard way to do that?  That is, the first two things are
easy to do, but putting it all back together seems fraught with traps.
 Its those traps I'm looking for.
