TB Puzzle Update

Here's an update from our developer free_radical, in case the attribution on the news isn't showing up for you.

Hello everyone!

I wanted to give a brief update on the TB puzzle. First, everyone did a great job and you have really impressed all of the scientists involved with the project. It is amazing for me to be part of a community that cares so much and is willing to work on projects that can help those in need.

As a heads up, I will begin to analyze the models created by everyone this week and next. For phase 3, we will use Foldit models, template models, and homology models as starting structures. We will also bring in the alignment tool to help out. As a quick reminder, there are no crystal structures and no crystals have formed from the protein that we have expressed. However, your models help guide us in experiments to help with the crystallization process.
