KHMER (http://khmer.readthedocs.org/en/v1.0.1/) may be of interest to you as it is designed for filtering & binning large read sets such as would result from a metagenomic sample

Oxford is probably a poor choice for sequencing targeted regions, given that most targeted sequencing is looking for small variations (such as SNPs) and Oxford looks out-of-the-box to not be well...

What are you sequencing? You might be better off using long reads (PacBio or Moleculo), which won't be 40Kb but given the recent successes (such as assembling an entire Drosophila chromosome arm)

ClustalO is designed only for proteins; it really isn't an appropriate tool for transcriptomes unless you have found the ORFs and translated them.

BLAST 1.x!!!

I assume you are trying to align a lot of sequences; otherwise it is probably about a page of code in any modern programming language & a good exercise for a beginning student.

How much experience do you have in the sequencing field? I'm not convinced any of these systems are ready for a typical physician's office, either on the laboratory side or the informatics side.
