So I downloaded the BLAST+ executables from NCBI (from here: ftp://ftp.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/blast/executables/blast+/LATEST/).
I opened terminal, copied and pasted the path to where I unzipped the BLAST+ file, and when I try to use makeblastdb I get "command not found"
Here is a screenshot (just blotted out my username):
I don't understand why it's not working, the path is correct, all files are there, I downloaded the 64bit version to match my mac.
The reason I'm doing this is because I want to make a local database out of a FASTA file to run a BLAST against. If anyone has any easier way of doing this please share, as my code proficiency is not strong.
