Wrapper for the NCBI BLAST+ program tblastn.

With the release of BLAST+ (BLAST rewritten in C++ instead of C), the NCBI replaced the old blastall tool with separate tools for each of the searches. This wrapper therefore replaces BlastallCommandline with option -p tblastn.

>>> from Bio.Blast.Applications import NcbitblastnCommandline
>>> cline = NcbitblastnCommandline(help=True)
>>> cline
NcbitblastnCommandline(cmd='tblastn', help=True)
>>> print(cline)
tblastn -help

You would typically run the command line with cline() or via the Python subprocess module, as described in the Biopython tutorial.
