Actually, the convenience of using SRS6 depends on services installed, how
they are implemented and so on. The SRS6 server at EBI does not have much on
the side of applications you can launch to process your BLAST results
(although the list of databases is impressive), but go e.g. to and you'll be able to BLAST, click the IDs of
your hits, select NClustalW from a dropdown box, click the 'Launch' button
and there you go.
