I'm not sure what you mean by "surface predictions", but you may be
interested in a paper by myself, Cyrus Chothia and Arthur Lesk,
J. Mol. Biol. vol. 196, pp 199-216 (1987). It describes a sequence
template characterizing the globin family which includes some
unexpected conservation rules at surface sites.
I can make the computer program and templates available to you.
They are written in C and, in older versions, ran on a VAX, but
now run on Unix. They could probably be re-ported to the VAX without
too much trouble, although I understand the VAX C compiler is buggy.
