Request ID: RID

An RID is like a ticket number that allows you to retrieve your search results and format them in many different ways over the next 24 hours.

If you've saved RIDs from your recent searches, you can enter the RIDs directly on the Request ID page. Or, you can also enter the RID in the Request ID text box near the top of the Recent Results portion of the BLAST web site.

The Recent Results tab also allows you to view BLAST jobs you’ve done in approximately the last 36 hours and list the RID of each one. To view the results of a search, just click on its RID.
