Hi,
Are there updated instructions for working with a user-defined sequence?
From what I can find here, the standalone Foldit seems to be no longer supported. As far as creating a new contest with a new sequence, I cannot figure out how to import the sequence or pdb file into the contest.
Any help appreciate. Thanks!

I think it's not foreseen, by purpose

I suppose there are many reasons for this, one of them being not multiplying the number of puzzles in competition for limited amount of players, avoiding cheating (exchanging pdb between other players)etc.

For contest, did you try the following: use a free design puzzle (200 or 500 length), assigning your own sequence and deleting the extra segments, then work with this one without mutating ?

Hi, Yes I was able to do that

Hi,
Yes I was able to do that and add my own sequence using the AA Copy Paste compare cookbook. However, it just adds it all in a linear structure. Is there anyway to import the native structure? Also is there any way to add a ligand?
Thanks!

For standalone, ask the researchers

The Wiki explains thinks here:
http://foldit.wikia.com/wiki/Contest

If standalone does not work, consider say it in Feedback.

Importing the native structure would't be allowed in Foldit game in order to avoid cheating, since I think it's possible to export the structure of a game solution (e.g. for CASP competitions). The re-importing by another soloist player would facilitate cheating (players have been banned for that).

So I believe importing a structure is disabled for normal players.

Standalone

Also if you are interested in working with the standalone version, or have issues with it, please email cgs-info@cs.washington.edu

Thanks!
