[Bioperl-l] Can I use BLAST against a database like MySQL

Hi,

As far as I know, before using BLAST to do the alignment the first thing should be done is typing formatdb to construct a database. But I was wondering whether it is possible to construct a database with MySQL which probably will grant the BLAST search a higher speed and make the database management much easier? 

Thanks!

Hubert.
