Table 9 The HI rules learnt to identify IMLA are shown in English translation. The secondary structure elements along the sequence are ordered into ten equal groups (deciles). The 1st decile are the 10% of elements near the N-teminal and the 10th decile at the C-terminal.

HI all  
A protein is homologous if
a1 it has the word 'synthase' in its description line and
  it is in the 10th decile of predicted secondary structures a coil of length level 4.
HI seq  
A protein is homologous if
s1 it has in the 10th decile of predicted α-helices a helix of length level 3 and
  it has in the 10th decile of predicted β-strands a strand of length level 1.
