Its hard to know where to draw the line when it comes to 'research
assignments' (kinda different from something like a maths assignment I
guess), however, it is always good to acknowladge your sources :)
By conincidence I found this (SAPS);
We describe several protein sequence statistics designed to evaluate
distinctive attributes of residue content and arrangement in primary
structure. Considered are global compositional biases, local clustering
of different residue types (e.g., charged residues, hydrophobic
residues, Ser/Thr), long runs of charged or uncharged residues, periodic
patterns, counts and distribution of homooligopeptides, and unusual
spacings between particular residue types. The computer program SAPS
(statistical analysis of protein sequences) calculates all the
statistics for any individual protein sequence input and is available
for the UNIX environment through electronic mail on request to V.B.
(volker/genomic at stanford.edu).
While reading an exelent summary email posted here;
Darx, if you have time, it is always good to send a final email back to
the list summarizing what you have found.
