Today's Update

We have posted an update to the game today, which includes:

1. The ability to switch green with blue in the protein rendering.  This option is under the general options menu.
2. A local shake in the Pull Mode's pie menu.
3. A fix for the problems with bands pulling too strongly.
4. A fix for the crashes users experienced related to adding bands and wiggling.

Update

We have an update today with several new and requested features!

1. There is now an option to switch the middle and right mouse button in the General Options.
2. You can click on the names of players and groups in the scores list in game to be taken to their web page.
3. You can now see how close you are to the next point in the bar next to your score.  So you will know if Wiggle is making progress!
4. The Clear Bands button will be disabled if there are no bands.
5. We have tried to address some issues with the responsiveness of the pull and problems with the score-based coloration.
6. We have tried to resolve the crashes some users encountered when loading some constrained puzzles.

You should get the update automatically when you run the game!

New Puzzle Type!

    Today, we'll begin a set of trials of a new kind of puzzle and several of these will be truly blind tests. We'll only find out the answer in the fall, as part of the "CASP" competition!

    These are cases where the starting model we give you takes advantage of structural information available for some close cousins. For example, we might be trying to solve the version of an enzyme in the Cholera bacteria, and we know the structure of the version in the E. Coli bacteria. In your puzzles, we'll have "constraints". These will be like preset rubber bands that will penalize really large movements of the constrained parts of the protein -- they will show as red lines as they start to impact your score. Also, as a visual aid, parts of the protein that are really constrained will have darker -- almost black -- backbones.  These sound like incredibly easy problems because of all the constraints -- but this puzzle of high resolution refinement of starting structures has turned out to be surprisingly hard. Help us get closer to this Holy Grail of structure modeling!

You can take advantage of locking and the pie menu options to focus on any unconstrained areas!
