Three programs which come to mind are Epiplot, Tsites, and Seqaid.
Epiplot and Tsites are programs devoted specifically for epitope
prediction, Seqaid is a general sequence utlity program with several
functions, one of which is epitope prediction. Seqaid and Epiplot are
for PCs (DOS), Tsites has a Mac version and probably a DOS version.
You can ftp Epiplot from:
FILE -rwxr--r-- 129317 Sep 16 1991 epiplot.uue
You can ftp seqaid from:
FILE -rw-r--r-- 324175 May 14 1991 seqaidfd.uue
FILE -rw-rw-r-- 6167 Oct 26 1989 seqaid.doc
FILE -rw-rw-r-- 324175 Jul 14 1989 seqaidfd.uue
FILE -rw-r--r-- 251259 Feb 3 00:00 seqaid.exe
FILE -rw-rw-r-- 305448 Jun 23 1991 seqaid37.shar
FILE -rw-r--r-- 73370 Feb 3 00:00 seqaidfd.exe
There is no ftp site for Tsites that I know of, you can obtain it
for free by writing to:
19 Firstfield Rd.
Gaithersburg, MD 20878 (USA)
