I'm interested in creating a Blast database (makeblastdb) from Uniprot's Bacteria division.
I had to turn to the database release on FTP due to the extremely slow download speed of the website's query results.
So I went to Uniprot's downloads page:
Then clicked 'Taxonomic divisions' (or in my case the FTP mirror that is closer to my country):
And downloaded these two files:
Then when I unzipped, I realized these were not Fasta files.
I can't figure out what is their format or how to create a blast database from it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
