Automated algorithms are developed in this paper based on digital signal processing to correlate electron-optical data from a fibrous protein with known sequence data. Such processing can lead to information about the structural effects produced by electromagnetic fields (EMF). In particular, it detects alterations on the mechanical properties of such proteins. Knowledge of the chemical make-up of protein molecules, can offer unique opportunities for interpreting image intensity data directly in terms of chemical data. Such an analysis allows the comparison to be made objectively and with precision. For studying the effects of EMF on a protein, collagen can serve as a model structure.
