Hi. I'm sure this answer must be common knowledge, but I can't figure it out: why is version 17apr2014-nt the latest available BLASTn database on usegalaxy.org? I normally blast from the command line, but my system is having some hiccups at the moment. I came to blast a few dozen sequences on Galaxy as a quick sanity check, and found that the database is ancient.
I wouldn't demand up-to-the-second reference data from a free online resource, but four years does seem like a little long between updates. I understand that workflows might reasonably require the user to provide their own reference data, but surely you don't want a zillion copies of BLAST references sitting on the server.
Apologies if this answer is out there and I've missed it in my searching, but everything I've found is about installing BLAST databases on local Galaxy servers.
