This is from the manual:

To prepare a dataset for use with MEGAN, one must first compare the given reads against a database of reference sequences, for example by performing a BLASTX search against the NCBI-NR database. The file of reads and the resulting BLAST file can then be directly imported into MEGAN and the program will automatically calculate a taxonomic classification of the reads and also, if desired, a functional classification, using either the SEED or KEGG classification, or both.
You import the blasta data to process it, but you can load processed megan results in .rma format.
