Enter your protein sequence and press the Submit button. You will then be presented with a page with ready-made forms to submit to a variety of Web-based protein sequence analysis facilities. (You can save that page for future use, of course !)

The following functionality is available:
SECURITY: although no guarantees are made, your sequence data ought to be fairly safe in Uppsala (not necessarily on the way back and forth). The way this server works, is that a little Perl CGI script reads your sequence and pastes it into a template form. Your sequence is never stored on disk here, nor does anyone receive a copy of it.
Maintained by Gerard Kleywegt (home page), who is funded by SBNet, the Swedish Structural Biology Network (site info).
NOTE: since the wonderful world of web-based bioinformatics servers is in constant development, services come and go, cgi-scripts move or get rewritten or suddenly get an extra input parameter, etc. Therefore, not all services will work at all times, although I do my best to keep this service up-to-date. If you experience problems (or if you have suggestions for other services that could be added to ProSAL), please E-mail Gerard Kleywegt. Thanks !
NOTE: you may also want to check out the following search launchers and meta services:

ProSAL was also mentioned in "Drug Discovery Today" of February 2002 (PubMed).
