Hello, as initially stated No Alignment In The Output Of Blastn, I am experiencing problems when I try to run the blastn command
blastn -query myquery -db mydatabase.fasta.nhr.
What I get is:
BLAST Database error: No alias or index file found for nucleotide database [mydatabase.fasta.nhr] in search path [/home/user/Desktop::]
The database file was generated using
makeblastdb -in mydatabase.fasta -dbtype nucl, which actually outputs three files, all giving the same error as above.
I understand that somehow I should add an external "alias or index" file in the same folder, maybe the solution would require blastdb_aliastool, included in the BLAST command line user manual, but at this point I would appreciate some hints. Thanks in advance.
