We have developed a computer system for the analysis of the environmental features of protein's amino acid sequence. This system consists of three major parts, (1) the main module which was designed for the manegement and display of polypeptide fragment data extracted from the PDB files, (2) environmental feature analysis of the target residues based on physicochemical properties of amino acids, (3) the display of three dimensional structure of peptide main chain. They were implemented on the UNIX workstation. The details of the system will be described with a couple of execution examples.
