You can try to use our new experimental server of BlocksBlast and 
Phyloblocks written by our Luke Ulrich.

1. BlocksBlast:

After you'll Blast your sequence you are given an option to select 
sequences and submit them to Phyloblocks directly from Blast (a standalone 
server for PhyloBlocks is at :

It will allign the sequences using Clustalw and also give you a tree from 
which you can create the subsets using color coding of the clustal tree. 
You can send  selected sequence groups to BlockMaker (Henikoff's ) to 
create HMM profiles, concensus sequences  and alignments specific to the 

We will very much appreciate your comments about these tools. A paper 
describing these tools should be out shortly
