But my impression was that Keith Akama was looking for software that will do 
"homology searches."  I assume that this means answering the question: what 
sequences in the databases are similar (perhaps homologous) to mine.  NetEntrez 
is wonderful software but I don't believe it can do homology searches.  A 
possibility in the near future is using the forms-capable version of MacMosaic 
(version 2.0, soon to be released?).  One can then use Mosaic as a front end to 
do BLAST and FASTA searches through the NCBI or the GenQuest system at ORNL.

I am currently having network problems that keep me from accessing the servers,
so I can't easily dig up the URLs for many of these services.  The URL for the 
BLAST search query page is "http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Recipon/blast_search.html" 
My home page that provides links to many of the services is at
