AMPS is a suite of programs designed for the multiple alignment of protein sequences and flexible pattern matching. Initial development of the algorithms programmed in this suite was performed whilst I was in the Department of Crystallography at Birkbeck College, University of London. The programs as distributed are the result of refinements and improvements on the the original Birkbeck programs during my time at the Imperial Cancer Research Fund Laboratories in London and further development at the Laboratory of Molecular Biophysics, Oxford.

These programs are available for academic, teaching and non-commercial purposes. The programs are supplied ``as is'' with no warranty whatsoever as to functioning, performance or effect on hardware of other software, express or implied.
