15.3.1 Edit BLAST Databases
You can edit display settings for NCBI BLAST databases, and change which BLAST databases are available via Geneious Prime by clicking on Edit Databases in the Tools → Add/Remove Databases → Set Up BLAST Services window. The actual databases on the BLAST server will not be changed by any edits made via this window. The following ﬁelds are available and may be edited:
- Database Name: A unique, case-sensitive name for the database which is speciﬁed by the NCBI or other database server. This must be correct for Geneious to be able to ﬁnd and search the database. The database name may be composed of multiple parts, e.g. ‘wgs:9606’ to access WGS sequences for Homo Sapiens.
- Display Name: The name that is displayed in Geneious for that database. This can be any unique and non-empty value.
- Description: Additional information to describe the database.
- Nucleotide / Protein: This option speciﬁes the molecule type of the sequences contained in the database. Either Nucleotide, Protein, or both options must be selected.
