I know of two programs that include this:
Name=predict.exe [ 2Nov93, 82kb]
Path=9/EMBnet BioInformation Resource EMBL/Software/dos/predict
Name=sqaid381.exe [ 2Nov93, 208kb]
Path=9/EMBnet BioInformation Resource EMBL/Software/dos/sqaid381
Both are PD/Shareware and are using the antigenicity calculation
proc. of Welling et.al 1985. Predict shows a nice graph on this,
but lacks output other than plotter.
Seqaid does a lot on nucleic acid analysis, as well as protein analysis.
The output is ascii graphics, but also raw data. These can be easily
imported in gnuplot or ACE/gr (or other) for high quality graphics
Hope this helps, Sebastian
