Hi everybody!

For a project, I'm trying to look for similar DNA sequences to a given sequence in the NCBI database, not necessarily from the same species, for example: given a DNA sequence found in a cat, I want to look for a similar one in different reptiles.

Hey there. We've been looking all over the internet, and couldn't find a way to run a blast search in a java program. Also, we tried to access through the url, but there is no way to achieve the search results..

We are really frustrated and in need of help. All we really need is a program to run a blastn search in java.

You said CPP is OK too. Did you look for a way to run blast in CPP? It'd be a little difficult to believe that BLAST doesn't have APIs in two mainstream languages.

REST API and C++ toolkit discovered after literally 5 minutes of Google: https://blast.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Blast.cgi?CMD=Web&PAGE_TYPE=BlastDocs&DOC_TYPE=DeveloperInfo ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
