Once a protein is sequenced, there are computer programs that handle the
maths for you. Antheprot and similar utilities will calculate how many
times each amino acid occurs in the protein, its molecular weight, pI,
molar absorbance coeficient at 280 nm, hydropathy profile, prediction of
antigenic segments and secondary structure and a lot more. Check the
biology section at SIMTEL or HENSA, if you are interested in such
utilities, many of which are freeware. Some of them are also run on the
net, Pedro's Molecular Biology Homepage
http://www.biophys.uni-duesseldorf.de/bionet/research_tools.html will
point you to these resources.
