Software

SSBOND
Find sites where new disulphide bonds can be engineered into proteins of known structure. (ssbond, Linux RH7.2 executable)
HYDENS
Given a PDB and ASCII structure factor file this program calculates the electron density at each atom's position (hydens, Linux RH7.2 executable)
MCFMAN
Program to manipulate coordinate files in PDB and MCF formats. Documentation is in the program header and in the HELP command. Should compile with standard Fortran 77 settings (mcfman, Linux RH 7.2 executable)
