Dear readers:

I just came across the following package, that might be of use to all
those interested in Protein and Nucleic Acid structure.

Cheers

MOLECULAR SURFACE PACKAGE  (MSP)


The MSP suite is made up of 8 different programs!

Here is a brief description:

* MSP computes Solvent-accessible surfaces of Protein and Nucleic Acids.

* Different types of surfaces can be generated with MSP:
Polyhedral surfaces made up of triangles, pixel maps of rendered
surfaces, piece-wise quartic molecular surfaces and Dot surfaces.  

* Cavities in Proteins are identified and accurate solvent-accessible
areas and Solvent-excluded volumes are also calculated.

* MSP also provides methods for estimating protein surface curvature and
for plotting surfaces with hidden-line elimination.

A description of MSP appeared in the June issue of J. Mol. Graphics. 
Vol. 11, 139-141 [1993].

MSP is written in C.

Those interested in obtaining MSP should contact the author Dr. Michael
Connolly via email:  connolly at netcom.com
