Protein secondary structure assignment

The DSSP program standardizes protein secondary structure assignment.
DSSP is a database of secondary structure assignments (and much more)
for all protein entries in the Protein Data Bank (PDB).  DSSP is also
the program that calculates DSSP entries from PDB entries.  DSSP does
not predict secondary structure.
