The new version 3.0 of the MacPattern sequence analysis program is now
available. MacPattern assists in finding putative functions for new protein
sequences by supporting pattern searches using the PROSITE database, block
searches using the BLOCKS database, and statistical analyses (maximal
segment score analysis). 

Major changes in v3.0 are vastly improved pattern searches (search a 900 aa
protein against all of PROSITE in 6 seconds on a Mac IIcx), a new, faster
approximate block search method, and translations of nucleotide sequences
in three or six reading frames.

MacPattern runs on any Macintosh with at least 750 kb of free RAM and
System version 6.0.5 or greater.

Copies can be obtained by anonymous ftp from
(/pub/software/mac/macpattern.hqx) or by email from
Netserv at EMBL-Heidelberg.DE (get mac_software:macpattern.hqx).
