The SecStr package contains computer programs making use of the secondary structure prediction methods of Nagano, Garnier et al., Burges et al., Chou and Fasman, Lim and Dufton and Hider. These programs were written in Fortran. The results of individual prediction methods are combined as described by Hamodrakas (1988), using a Perl program, to produce joint prediction histograms (JPH), for three types of secondary structure, which may be presented separately on a Java Applet.

The output may be given either in text or graphics mode. For the latter a Java capable browser is required.
