I am following this link: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK52637/
I install NCBI BLAST+ package. Then create db folder inside blast-2.2.31+ folder to download one of NCBI databases. I select swissprot database and download it in the db folder. After that, I run:
perl update_blastdb.pl --passive swissprot
and it connect to NCBI successfully and download swissport in the bin folder. So, now I have two swissprot.tar.gz. One I download it in db folder and one downloaded in bin folder after running perl cammand.
Then I set PATH and BLASTDB environment variables. BLASTDB will contain which swissport database? the one in db or in bin?
The main issue appears when I type:
blastdbcmd -db swissprot -info
BLAST database error: no alias or index file found for nucleotide database [swissprot] in search path.....
What does this means?
I follow the link step by step.
Thank you and regards,,,
