Hi Jeroen,

a normal blastdb file consists of 4 files:

x		# <== !!

So if you created this database with the command formatdb -i x -p F, 'x'
is the multifasta file _and_ the database name to search against.

This means, in your case 'x' is the multifasta file your looking for.
There's no need to extract this file ...

Hope this helps

with best regards

Sven Klages
