As I understand, the question below should be considered as a "feature
request" - in some programs there are builders that allow to assemble,
for example, helices or beta-strands given only the sequence. I also
think that it would be nice to have buildHelixFromString(["Ala", "Gly",
"Tyr", ...]). 
Unfortunately I don't know of any module that would do this...
