comment How to get only perfect matches with blastn?
From my experience, I don't think this is possible. BLAST was designed to find many distant hits, so it wasn't made for this very strong requirement of identical sequences. But you can probably filter it afterwards, no?

comment Hiding identical sequences in NCBI web interface
well, just take one sequence from each cluster! if you download the UniRef databases, you actually get the non-redundant set.

comment Local storage of NCBI database in MongoDB
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about pure bioinformatics implementation issues, not biology. Also: why would you want to use MongoDB, given you just heard about it and don't know the advantages?
