Description: We're revisiting this old electron density puzzle to test some recent changes to Foldit! In this puzzle, there are bits of density which don't belong to the copy of the protein that you're working on. You'll have to decide which bits of density to match with, and which bits to ignore. Try to fit the protein into the density to get the best score! Secondary structure predictions are posted in the puzzle comments along with info about available tools in the game.

Secondary structure predictions

H = helix
E = sheet
C = loop (or coil)

The taller the letter at each position, the higher the probability of that specific secondary structure for that amino acid.

The above predictions are already on the starting model (based on the horizontal lines in the above figure).

Cutaway view hint:
If you hover your mouse over a segment and type shift-Q, the game will hide parts of the protein and cloud that are not in the same plane as that segment - it cuts down on how much cloud you see at one time and makes it easier to focus. Q returns to normal view.

what are the shortcuts for a Mac?

Who knows what is the equivalent of shift-Q and Q on a Mac (for me under azerty keyboard, Q changes a view, shift-Q does something like undo) ?
