Mass search versus NCBI's COGs database

Actually the only way to do it with multiple sequences is to write a small
perl script that runs a blast  to the cog database. There are some scripts
ready for this that you can easily find in bioperl.
Basically you have to run a blastp against the cog database. If you are
familiar with bioperl it is very easy to do.

ps: Let me know if you need help...
