Jason is correct.

I run CDD searches locally via
Bio::Tools::Run::StandAloneBlast->rpsblast() and parse the results
with Bio::SearchIO. "rpsblast" comes with the standard BLAST package.
You can download the CDD models already compiled too from NCBI's ftp
site. RPS-BLAST runs very quickly too as their are only 12,000 models
in the CDD database.
