Dear Collegues.
My question is probably trivial but I am a newcomer to this field and
I could not find a FAQ on this.
I currently often do BLAST or FASTA searches of particular protein sequences 
against the SWISSPROT or PIR databases though the WWW. The problem is that the
internet connection of my lab is slow. I am thus thinking of doing such
searches locally after downloading the complete database. Could somebody
suggest me a freely available software that allows one to do a BLAST or FASTA 
alignment search locally ? 
Thank you in advance.
