Bulk extraction of genes information - (Aug/19/2008 )

Hello All,

I have few genes which are not well characterized. To obtain more information about them I could tblastn all of them one by one to find out function/domains and homologies.

I am wondering if there is any utility that can just take the gene names and do this for me in one click or there is any database that does it automatically.

Many thanks in advance.

are you familiar with command line? if you are, then you can use blastall -p tblastn -d database -i your.genes -o output.file

where your.genes is a fasta file with the sequences you're interested to blast. some online programs take up to 100 sequences or so, ncbi does it i think.
