Dear Malcom,
Thanks for such a detialed  reply !!!
I am sorry for the 'bad description' of my problem.

I am aware that fastacmd -s can search using the Accession ID (say a set of
numbers ), I am looking for an option to quickly search the nr database to
retreive sequence basesd on the "Query String".

For example : If the following is a snippet of a sequence from nr :
> gi|15674171|ref|NP_268346.1,gi|Homo Sapiens - Kinase 1
I  need to retrieve the above entries (and of course entries having similar)
based on a Query string say "Homo Sapiens". I know this can be done using a
Perl script, and I have coded one for myself, but I need something quick
like fastacmd -s.

Hope you got my question this time.
Thanks for all the time you spent for me !!!
Happy Bioinformatics
