1. Upload online NCBI Blast Executables (blast.zip)

2. Uncompress and install folder blast into /bin, that should result in /bin/blast

3. Rename the appropriate folder depending of your OS and delete all other folders unrelated to your system.

e.g. for any Windows server: C:\Program Files (x86)\AgileBio\LabCollector\www\lab\bin\blast\windows
      for any unix or linux server: /bin/blast/unix
       On a Linux 64bits OS you should rename /bin/blast/linux64 to /bin/blast/unix
