Both Chou and Fasman and GOR were developed on globular proteins.  If
you want to try more up to date secondary structure prediction methods
follow the links from Rob Russell's guide to structure prediction.


This gives a pretty comprehensive guide to methods currently 
available via the WWW for secondary and tertiary structure 
prediction and fold recognition.
