In my onechannelGUI package I am developing a section related to 
Affymetrix exon array analysis, creating few functions that allow the 
association of exon-level Probe Selection Region (PSR) to refseq

1st question:
I have implemented a function that blast a list of PSR sequences over 
all refseq.
However, I would like to know if there is any way of doing something 
similar using the Biostring package.
I tried the pairwiseAlignment function but it is quite slow compared to 

2nd question:
 there is any way of merging two DNAStringSets ?
