Hi Roy,

Thank you for your quick reply, I already tried xbase and it finds some of
the exopolysacharide biosynthesis genes that I’m looking for but only the
genes that are already annotated in the other organisms. I also tried to
merge these results but it still misses some of the genes  or the correct
annotation and merging also cost a lot of time. Since I am only looking for
a certain set of genes, I thought it might be easier to use a certain script
that can blast these these protein queries and add the annotation at the
locations were it finds simularity in my sequence. I already tried to make a
script myself but I'm still troubled how to connect the output of ablast to
the action of adding the gene information and write it to a certain file.
