There is the program ANTIGENIC which is part of the EGCG package (which
means you also have to have GCG).


     ANTIGENIC  looks  for potential antigenic regions using the method of


     Antigenic  predicts  potentially  antigenic  regions  of  a   protein
     sequence,  using the method  of Kolaskar and Tongaonkar  (1990); FEBS
     Letters  276:172-174  "A  semi-empirical  method  for  prediction  of
     antigenic determinants on protein antigens."
