I know how to installed command line BLAST(2.2.31) previously, I installed and configured it on windows and unuix enviornment (both are working perfectly). But this time I have large amount of sequences for blast therefor I thought to do this through remote server PuTTY / SSH .

I tried to download and configured it as I did in unix. BUT it seems that there is something wrong. 


I put it in a directory wher I want to install and then extracted it  and configured it as follwing:

$ export PATH="PATH:home/tb44227/nobackup/ncbi-blast-2.2.31+/bin"

then I make the directory of db in ncbi-blast-2.2.31+ directory

$mkdir db

then downloaded  the databases from ncbi and swissprot.

tb44227@lidong2:~/nobackup/ncbi-blast-2.2.31+> -bash: blastn: command not found
If '-bash:' is not a typo you can run the following command to lookup the package that contains the binary:
    command-not-found -bash:
-bash: -bash:: command not found

Could you please guide what|s wrong with the installation and configuration process of blast+.

I am absolutely new in SSH and PUTTY. Applogy if I made some mistakes.

I see two mistakes which mangled your PATH
