β -turns vs. maximally connected bit-patterns: an example. (a) A type 8 bit-pattern is identified in the 166thframe of the BBA5 T 23 trajectory. This bit-pattern corresponds to the the connected 1s in the table, where a '1' indicates two corresponding C
atoms are in contact,'-' otherwise. This pattern consists of the first 10 C
atoms. (b) The 3D conformation of this frame, where the first 10 C
atoms resembles a β-turn.
