It depends on what you mean by 'do blast'. If you are looking to align 
sequences to a reference genome with possible gaps, then you should look 
at (to start) the Biostrings package of Bioconductor. There are other 
alignment tools, depending on what exactly you want to do.

If you are simply looking for a tool that will allow you to upload 
sequences to the blast server and retrieve the results, then I don't 
know if such a thing exists.
