DNA Master BLAST Update

Hi all,

Recently, NCBI changed the location of the BLAST server from http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/blast/Blast.cgi to http://blast.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Blast.cgi. This will cause HTTP 404 or HTTP 301 errors when attempting to run BLAST searches from within DNA Master.

Dr. Jeffrey Lawrence has just issued a DNA Master update to address this issue. The new version is 5.22.16, Build 2441, 5 May 2014.

To update, go to Help -> Update DNA Master

After updating, restart DNA Master, and the BLAST function should work again.
