New versions of BlockSearch (for UNIX, VMS, OpenVMS) and MacPattern
(Mac) are now available which are compatible with the new release
of BLOCKS and which introduce sequence weighting according to the
Thompson-Higgins-Gibson method.

In short, these programs are useful for identifying the function of
newly discovered proteins by comparing their sequences against the
BLOCKS database by Steven and Jorja Henikoff.

Copies can be obtained by anonymous ftp from ftp.embl-heidelberg.de
as /pub/software/vax/blksrch.uue, /pub/software/unix/blocksearch.tar.Z
or /pub/software/mac/macpattern.hqx.

Or by email from netserv at embl-heidelberg.de using the commands
get vax_software:blksrch.uue, get unix_software:blksrch.uue, or 
get mac_software:macpattern.hqx
