Dear Collegues,

another applet had been developed and added in the
Java based Molecular Biologists Workbench (JaMBW) set.


This one really starts using the Java graphical
capabilities and not only the mere character i/o.

It is called WindowComposition and can be used for
any kind of sequences in order to know the running
percentage composition in the defined set of symbols.


The output is obviously graphical ...

   sequence (dna or protein does not matter)
   window size
   symbols to use 

Examples of its use are for answering questions as:
   which are the regions reacher in  xxxx ?
   e.g. "hydrophilic regions of protein sequence"
        "hydrophobic regions of protein sequence"
        "acidic regions of prein sequence"
        "AT reach regions of nucleic acids ..."
        and so on 

Feedback (mailto:Luca.Toldo at EMBL-Heidelberg.DE) is
welcome and extremely appreciated ! 
(e.g. which mol-bio applet would you appreciate next?)

More applets are appearing on the JaMBW set written
by also other contributors:

The JavaScript Oligo Calculator of Eugen BUEHLER
The Java applet Helical Wheel   by Marcel TURCOTTE

and more are coming ...
