Hi all,

Can anybody recommend me a good threading program? By "threading" I mean a
program which accepts a protein sequence, and produces a fold prediction
based on energy minimization by alignment to known folds. More
specifically I'm looking for:

1) A standalone program, preferably on a Linux machine.

2) A program which can produce meaningful results for pairwise threading,
that is, compare several given query sequences against a single fold. But
a library-based threader (such as GenThreader) is also good.
unfortunately the latter is temporarily unavailable for download, AFAIK.

3) Hopefully well documented, easy to use, etc. etc.
