Dear Colleagues,

We would like to announce the release of beta version of GETAREA 1.0,
the new free WWW service for calculating the solvent accessible surface
area of molecules. Users wanting to calculate SASA of proteins will
merely supply the name of their local file containing atomic coordinates

in PDB format. There is an otpion to calculate solvation energy and
inclusion of molecules other than proteins. The relevant URL is:

Note: the current release is for testing purposes only. Surely there are

still some undiscovered bugs. Please help us disclose them by submitting

test inputs. All remarks and suggestions should be directed to
robert at or werner at

Thank you in advance,
