Default Help with Blast and nr database


I have a list of contigs that I would like them Blast on my computer (BioLinux 6), my question is how to use the nr database (preformatted, nr.00.tar.gz ... nr.06.tar.gz) I decompressed tar xzvf files, creating files with extension. phd. phi. phr. pin. pnd. pni. pog. ppi. psd. psi. psq But not to do with them, I found the following with formatdb:

"Please note that formatdb does not create non-redundant blast databases"

That means you can run blastall as are the files or format it with another program and not formatdb?

Are you interested in blasting your contigs against the preformatted "nr" database?

If that is correct then have a look at this link:
