crystalball answers every question that you want to ask about a target sequence. It's used by heads of drug discovery, CIOs, and CFOs at all of the major pharmaceutical companies.
Here's a sample crystalball session:
% crystalball mySeq -rdtime -rdcost -profit -outfile stdout Answers every drug discovery question you have about this sequence. Drug discovery development time: 10-15 years Drug discovery development cost: $800 million Profit: Not nearly as much as you'd like!
In case you haven't guessed, crystalball is a completely fictitious routine. EMBOSS doesn't contain this functionality. No one else has it either, but lots of people wish for just such a tool!
