Hi Terence,
	we've got the OML packages here, including Cameleon. It's a nice package which does
most of what you'd want in a sequence analysis prog eg the latest version (3.0) has the following
facilities: multiple sequence alignments using Multal, the ability to plot various profiles 
(hydropathy, antigenicity etc ), trans-membrane prediction algorithms (!), secondary structure 
predictions. We run it on a Silicon Graphics machine, and I know there is a version for HPUX. 
You could phone them on + 44 865784600 (UK) or +81 332455004 (Japan).
	A good package I use a lot is 'seqsee', a public domain analysis package from David Wishart.
It is only a first release (v1.2 at the moment), but is quite excellent - most of the 
functionality in GCG, including database searching (you've got to have swiss-prot or PIR on
your system), alignments, predictions and profiles are included. I'd recommend getting hold of this
before you go and buy anything. You can contact David on dsw at bellatrix.biochem.ualberta.ca.

	Hope this is helpful,
