Can anyone point me to a program for performing hydrophobic cluster
analysis of protein sequences? I've read mentions of HCA plot, written
in Fortran 77, and also HCABAND in BASIC.
The reference is C. Gaboriaud, V. Bissery, T. Benchetrit and J.P. Mornon's
Hydrophobic cluster analysis: an efficient new way to compare and analyse
amino acid sequences, FEBS Letters 224(1):149-155 (1987).
I have Dr. Mornon's address, but don't really want to wait as long as it
would take for mail to reach him, and I'm afraid to try directory assistance
in France to try to get his phone number. Could somebody possibly have an
e-mail address for him?
All 23 of the papers I found in Medline that mentioned HCA were from
various European labs--no sign that anyone has ever used it on this
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
