MPsrch is primarily used for rapid protein database searching on the
MasPar Computer. It is (C) University of Edinburgh, distributed by
Intelligenetics Inc. and runs also on DNA sequences, as well as the
translations. We use it happily from PC,Mac or other packages installed
on workstations or computers using our HASSLE system.
The BLITZ server at EBI/EMBL resp. runs the software (in a previous version
as far as I know) on a MasPar as well. It it accessible by eMail.
There are other implementations of S&W on the MasPar (BLAZE by Intelligenetics
The BIOCCELLERATOR (by Compugen Ltd.) runs Smith and Watermann, as well as
Other special hardware was / is available from vendors of sequenator machines.
To run S&W software on low-end machines you might refer to the
FASTA Package by B.Pearson. You might ask Andrew Lloyd from the
Irish EMBnet node for more infomation and access to the software.
