Hi all,
How do predict what types of secondary structure (left alpha helices, right alpha helices, parallel beta sheet, antiparallel beta sheet) from amino acid sequence?

The secondary structure is the general three-dimensional form of local segments of biopolymers such as proteins and nucleic acids. Secondary structure was predicted by using the programs PSIPRED and ALB. The residues predicted as helical are marked by H by PSIPRED and by H and & by ALB, and those predicted as -structural are marked by E by PSIPRED and by S and B by ALB.
