A new program, BlockSearch, is available for the analysis of new protein
sequences using site-specific scoring matrices derived from Steven and
Jorja Henikoff's BLOCKS database. The program was developed primarily for
VMS/OpenVMS systems, but is written in ANSI C and should work on other
platforms as well. It reads sequences in a variety of formats, including
SWISS-PROT and GCG. A comparison of a typical-length protein sequence
against BLOCKS release 6 takes about 15-20 CPU secs.
