I know of two neural net applications ;-
Dmitrij Frishmann & Patrick Argos (1992)
"Recognition of distantly related protein sequences using conserved Motifs and
Jonathan Hirst & Michael Sternberg (1992)
"Evaluation of protein motif recognition by neural networks"
Both presented at "Genes, Proteins and Computers - 2nd International Conference
on Computing in Molecular Biology" Chester (UK), September 1992
Frishmann at the time was at EMBL and a netfind shows him to be reachable as :
frishman at embl-heidelberg.de
also Argos can be mailed at:
argos at embl-heidelberg.de
I couldnt narrow down the icrf search theree are 27 domains at icrf - try
posting to postmaster at icrf.ac.uk they may be able to give you Hirst and Sternberg's
