If you want to compare amino acid compositions, you could try a query to
SWISSPROT at EXPASY: AACompSim (http://expasy.hcuge.ch/ch2d/aacsim.html)
compares the amino acid composition of a SWISS-PROT entry with all other
SWISS-PROT entries in order to find proteins with the closest amino
acid compositions and AACompIdent
(http://expasy.hcuge.ch/ch2d/aacompi.html) searches SWISS-PROT for
proteins whose amino acid compositions are closest to the amino
acid composition given.
I hope that everyone who uses SWISSPROT has mailed their support to Amos
Bairoch following his post about the funding problem.
