  Description     : transmembrane topology prediction
 Toppred is a program to determine the topology of a transmembrane
 protein based on G. von Heijne algorithm.
 Each sequence from seq data in fasta format is processed, and toppred
 generate the Hydrophobycity profile of the sequence, and the
 corresponding hydrophobycities values in the file sequence-ID.hydro.
 Furthermore, the predicted topologies are represented as png images.
 Each topology is stored in file sequence-ID-number.png
 The hydrophobicity profile is computed using a window formed by a core
 rectangular window of size n, flanked by 2 triangular windows of size q.
 NB rectangular and triangular mean that the ponderation values inside
 those windows are respectively constant and variable.
 This program is a new implementation of the original toppred program,
 based on G. von Heijne algorithm

This package is maintained in the Debian Med team and was created
as demonstration in the Debian Med sprint.  The VCS URL is
