Protein secondary structure prediction problem has been known for almost a quarter of century. The idea to create a tool to help molecular biologists was the main reason to choose the new rule-based method—Logical Analysis of Data with its high accuracy in various field of life. The LAD produced overall percentage accuracy of correctly predicted residues Q 3 = 71,6%, and segment overlap measure SOV = 70,9% on the set consist of 126 proteins. The goal of the analysis described in this paper is to create a system that allows for receiving as the output the protein secondary structure, based on its primary structure being an input, and for finding rules responsible for this effect.
