[Bioperl-l] Specifying the search set in NCBI BLAST

In the "Choose Search Set" tab on the NCBI BLAST webpage, there are some
convenient ways to restrict the size of the database for queries.  In there
a way to apply these restrictions in a remote search via Bioperl?

For example, in our research, we want to search only the "Non-human,
non-mouse ESTs" for the organism "Triticum" rather than the entire NCBI
database.

Thanks very much for any guidance.
