Sites and signatures detection with
PATTINPROT allow a search of one or several pattern on a protein
database or on an individual sequence. PROSCAN scan a protein sequence against PROSITE.
All methods proposed by NPS@ are piped. The ouput of one method could be the input of another one.
For example, after you've performed a BLAST search, you can make a database of full or partial sequences. Thenafter, this database
could be aligned by multiple alignment programs (CLUSTALW,MULTALIN), filtered by a pattern search (PATTINPROT) or you can apply
NPS@'s methods on each sequence of the database. And this, with no cut and paste.
You can insert secondary structure prediction in multiple alignment.

NPS@ is the "little web brother" of ANTHEPROT and MPSA softwares. The guiding philosophy is the same for these
two softwares and for this "webware".
We hope they are useful and easy-to-use...
