Perhaps you want to try the Internet service SRS-Fasta, which lets you select
subsets of Genbank & Swiss-Prot with the powerful SequenceRetrievalSoftware,
such as all those refering to bacteria (though the subset may well be
redundant), then use FastA to do a similarity search on that subset.
Take a look at http://iubio.bio.indiana.edu:81/srsfasta/
if you like.
