Explicitly inform that makedb input file needed is a fasta format file


New member
After I have downloaded the all ftp://ftp.ncbi.nih.gov/blast/db/nr.*.tar.gz for twice (that files was renewed and wget downloaded they again), and tried cat nr.*.tar.gz | tar -xz | diamond makedb -d /home/user/Diamond_D, unsuccessful, I found this post. So, I ask if there is a chance to put a FAQ and/or a line in somewhere explaining that the right place to download NCBI database is ftp://ftp.ncbi.nih.gov/blast/db/FASTA/? Thank you so much!
