comment Using Jpred to predict secondary structure
@Ksims Yes, those are all secondary structure prediction methods, albeit of varying age: Chou-Fasman is one of the early methods from the 70s, GOR should also fall around that time, while Jpred still seems to be under development (at least until 2000). Wikipedia has a small list of secondary structure prediction methods which you can try out. I do think it is worthwhile to look at a few more results, although the consensus isn't necessarily always right.

comment What information can Uniprot give me about phosphorylated forms of proteins?
This is the relevant help entry, should you want more information on these annotations. You can use the advanced search with Keyword '597' to only retrieve proteins that have phosphorylation annotations.

comment Is “computational biology” different from “bioinformatics”?
Probably better to ask them directly :) biostars.org Actually there are few questions going into that direction already: biostars.org/search/?q=computational+biology

comment Athletes: nature vs. nurture?
The Oregon Project might also be interesting to look at, as a means to counter the seemingly 'superior genes' of the, say Kenyan, runners with high-tech equipment.

comment Source of DNA sequences
Since I can only add comments here: I agree with Daniel Standage that Genbank is the more suitable ressource but how do you ensure there that it's only protein coding DNA? You could limit your search for mRNA on the right which should throw out some non-protein results however then you have mRNA sequences which of course differ from the DNA sequence they originate from. If that is not an issue I'd say go for that.
