Hi Hans,

Yes. But it sounds like you're trying to use the Bio::Tools::Run modules for the old Blast, not Blast+. Blast+ doesn't have a blastall executable, it has blastn, blastp, etc.

See http://www.bioperl.org/wiki/HOWTO:BlastPlus for example code.

Also, you probably need to upgrade your BioPerl installation. I'm pretty sure BioPerl 1.5.2 doesn't have the Blast+ code in it.
