I think it would be helpful if when you tabbed on a segment and the "Segment Information" box appeared,
within this box it would show the segment's present assigned secondary structure (H=helix, E=sheet, or L=loop).

One could also include in the "Segment Information" box what "Reset Structures"
and "Auto Structures" would give for the present protein conformation.
Also, various programs can predict %helix, %sheet, and %loop
for each amino acid in a particular protein sequence.
I have even seen charts that list %helix, %sheet, and %loop
for each amino acid no matter what its surrounding sequence is.
Perhaps this information could be included in the "Segment Information" box as well.

Thanks!

Below is some LUA code that lists the probability a particular amino acid
is helix, sheet, or coil independent of its surrounding sequence:

http://books.google.com/books?id=Jb0fQH1Eto0C&q=301#v=snippet&q=Table%205-11%20and%20301&f=false
gives the chart (Table 5-11 on p.301) used in the LUA code above.

The book above is from 1980, and its Table 5-11 uses data from a 1974 paper.
Has anyone seen more recent data like in Table 5-11?
Do the %helix, %sheet, and %loop differ between soluble and membrane proteins?

Thanks!

for example, gives SAM Server predictions for
helix, sheet, and loop likelihoods
for each amino acid in puzzle 951.

I think the SAM Server can also output these helix, sheet, and loop likelihoods
as several columns of %helix, %sheet, and %loop numeric values.
