Hi all, in the legacy BLAST, the command formatdb is used for formating fasta files into BLAST database. Then in BLAST+, makeblastdb is used. And I tried to apply blastx+ on a database formatted by formatdb, it doesn't give me errors but would the result be wrong?
What is the difference between formatdb and makeblastdb? Do they give the same result? As I had a couple of data ran (used blastx+) on a database which was formatted by using formatdb. Do I need to re-run them? Thanks in advance.
