The BLAST search function in Geneious Prime includes a preset list of common search databases. Additional databases from NCBI can be made available and unwanted databases can be removed from the list. You can also create customised databases. For example, a database that is limited to your organism of interest can be created to only return hits within a specified taxid. To do this, click on Edit Databases in the Tools → Add/Remove Databases → Set Up BLAST Services window.
This will open a list of the current databases available in Geneious Blast searches. Click "Add" to make an additional menu option.
The following fields must be entered:
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.
