Add database for sequenceserver from ncbi

Hello, friends!

Can you tell me how to install a database server in the sequenceserver for blast?

I need to bind the database for the blasts as in your screenshot 2_2.png.

But I don’t know where to download the file on site, for example, such as viruses and install the database.

I see and see database and I don’t install the database for sequenceserver.

Thank you very much!


Each NCBI database comprises several files (also called volumes). Make sure to download all the files. You can use (that comes with BLAST) or ncbi-blast-dbs gem ( to make sure all files are downloaded.

Once you have downloaded the databases, tell SequenceServer which directory you downloaded the databases to.

sequenceserver -s -d /my/databases
