Email servers and WWW Mosaic:
BCM Gene-finder and secondary structure prediction
programs are available now by sending the file containing
a sequence (the sequence format is described in Help files) to
The University of Houston Gene server:
service at bchs.uh.edu or
Weizmann University server:
services at bioinformatics.weizmann.ac.il
with the subject line "program_name".
Examples: mail -s fgeneh service at bchs.uh.edu < test.seq
mail -s fgeneh services at bioinformatics.weizmann.ac.il < test.seq
You can obtain help files by sending the subject line
man <servicename> such as
Subject: man hexon to service at bchs.uh.edu
Help files now you can read from WWW Mosaic:

The services are
FGENEH - search for gene structure with exons assembling by dynamic programming
FEXH - search for 5'-, internal and 3'-exons
HEXON - search for internal exons
HSPL - search for splice sites
SSP - prediction of a-helix and b-strand in globular proteins
by segment-oriented approach.
NSSP - prediction of a-helix and b-strand segments in globular proteins
by nearest-neighbor algorithm.
