Associations between short amino acid sequence patterns and protein secondary structure classes can be found by searching a data base of known protein structures. Analysis of these associations suggests that secondary structure of proteins can be determined locally by sequence motifs of high predictive value, but at present our ability to find these motifs is limited by the size of the available data bases.
