Can someone confirm that using the -num_threads option uses multiple cores for blastn in blast2.6.0+? I am unable to get blastn running on multiple cores even for part of the blast process. I am blasting against the nt database.

blastp against nr database uses multiple cores when num_threads is set >1 but not blastn against nt database.

It may not use all the threads allocated by you. However it uses multiple threads according to its requirement.

have you tried it and seen it using multiple cores?

Ofcourse several times.

Here is the sample command..

blastn -query query_sequence.fa -db /blastdb/nr -evalue 0.0001 -outfmt "6 qseqid sseqid pident qlen length mismatch gapope evalue bitscore qcovs" -out blast_output.txt -perc_identity 100.00 -num_threads 5
