Where do you get the phi and psi angles from? sounds a bit like a  
protein structure prediction problem, which Biojava can not do. If  
you have a structure and you want to get the phi and psi angles, you  
can have a look at the example in the docu: http://www.biojava.org/ 

There are also some tools for calculations on atoms and amino acids  
available from:
