A new method for protein secondary structure prediction is described in the present article. This method based on GUHA-method has been known in the field X-ray resolution less than 0,2 nm was used for learning and prediction of protein secondary structure. Average accuracy of prediction for α-helix is 74 %, β- strand is 67 %, coil is 71 % and for three states simultaneously is 68 % of successful prediction.
