NNSSP Program Description Version 2.NNSSP  Prediction of protein secondary structure by combining nearestneighbor algorithms and multiply sequence alignmentsVersion 2 Method description:Yi and Lander (*) developed a neuralnetwork and nearestneighbor method with a scoring system that combined a sequence similarity matrix with the local structural environment scoring scheme of Bowie et al.(**) for predicting protein secondary structure. We have improved their scoring system by taking into consideration N and Cterminal positions of ahelices and bstrands and also bturns as distinctive types of secondary structure. Another improvement, which also significantly decrease the time of computation, is performed by restricting a data base with a smaller subset of proteins which are similar with a query sequence. Using multiple sequence alignments rather than single sequences and a simple jury decision method we achieved an over all threestate accuracy of 72.2%, which is better than that observed for the most accurate multilayered neural network approach, tested on the same data set of 126 nonhomologous protein chains.
