Software for Viewing the Effect of Amino Acid Modifications (or Substitutions) on Secondary Structur

Here's kind of a wild question. I wonder if anyone knows of software
that could do the following: Suppose you had a protein with a PDB file
entry. Naturally, you could visualize the structure using Rasmol. But
say you wanted to find out how chemical aging of amino acid residues
might affect secondary structure. Is there a program that would allow
you to do this? Also, is there any software that permits you to examine
the effect of amino acid substitutions on secondary structure? I know
this is a longshot, but I thought I'd ask anyway.
