New update: Protein Design!
We have posted an update with some exciting new features! This update contains tools for protein design, which will be accessible in some puzzles, and allow you to design completely new proteins! We should be posting some design competition puzzles soon, and in the meantime you can try out the new levels. There is more information about what's coming up in the blog.
Here are some of the new features:
Design: it is now possible to modify the sequence of proteins in some puzzles!
Band visualizations: you can now see the strength and length of bands.
Performance: Ctrl+Shft+L will render the protein with lines. Rendering stops if minimized on Windows, and should reduce CPU usage.
Levels: The levels have been adjusted, and there is a new interface for moving from one to the next. There are new levels for design.
Tools: We have cut down on the effectiveness of actions which don't change the backbone very much. This means that instead of chasing those last few decimals, you should explore larger changes to the protein. You will see this shift reflected in the change to the speed and effectiveness of all the tools.(Thu, 05/21/2009 - 21:38 | 15 comments)
