NAOMI - Version Upgrade Announcement
------------------------------------
_____________________________________________________________________________

The computer program NAOMI Version 2.00b is available _now_ via
anonymous ftp from:

        nmrz.ocms.ox.ac.uk

in directory pub/smb/naomi/

Existing academic users may upgrade to the new version which _will_ 
work with their current main license key, and any existing "feature" 
license keys.  Existing commercial users will need _new_ license 
keys to allow the (free) upgrade to work.

NAOMI is provided at zero charge for academic users.

What is NAOMI?

NAOMI is a computer program aimed at both specialist and non-specialist
researchers who make use of three-dimensional structures of proteins 
in their work.

The general features offered by the program make it it a useful addition to
programs such as X-PLOR for performing structure-function related 
computations on protein structures. In addition, a number of specific 
types of calculation are offered which are of interest to groups of people.

NAOMI provides interfaces to the graphics programs MOLSCRIPT, INSIGHT II
and QUANTA, as well as its own graphical output, to allow efficient 
visualizations of the results of calculations and analyses. It is 
operated by an intuitive command language, coupled with interactive 
documentation, that allows the user to perform manipulations of and 
calculations on three-dimensional structures of proteins in a 
time-efficient manner.


Features include:

    General structural analysis
    Interfaces to computer graphics programs (MOLSCRIPT, INSIGHT II, QUANTA)
    Dealing with problematic pdb files
    Simulating dynamic properties of proteins
    Prediction of protein function from 3-D structure
    Protein Engineering and Design
    NMR structure refinement
    Tertiary structure prediction
    Prediction of protein folding pathways

NAOMI is Copyright Simon M. Brocklehurst 1992-1995.

NB NAOMI currently works only on Silicon Graphics workstations.
