TFD is available as protein database for similarity search using the NCBI BLAST
e-mai server. If you a have a nucleotide query you still can perform a search by
using the blastx program. Remember the following possibilities:
     blastp  aadb aaquery  
     blastn  ntdb ntquery
     blastx  aadb ntquery
     tblastn ntdb aaquery
For more help on hoe to use this service please send an e-mail to :
                  blast at 
with just a "help" (whitout the quote) in the body of the
e-mail. Or for direct question to the BLAST staff send your question to :
