BLAST updates

BLAST updates:

The color scheme for reporting HSPs now uses the static system by default. This system is based on the default NCBI system for reporting colors based on bit-score.

Viewing HSPs in Jbrowse/Web Apollo is now in color! Each HSP is colored based on the bitscore value, and uses the same color scale as the static color scale in the BLAST report. Right clicking on a feature to “View Details" now includes additional information at the HSP level based on the BLAST output. The HSPs are still draggable, and may be used as part of a feature annotation strategy. A big thanks to Han Lin for developing this feature!
