    The statistical properties of primary sequences of HP “H - hydrophobic and P - polar” copolymers were discussed. The HP copolymers were designed to have water soluble globular conformations with H monomers shielded from water inside the shell of P monomers. It was observed that for large globules and flexible polymers such sequences exhibit long-range correlations, which can be described by Levy-flight statistics.
