Mini CASP-like competition starts today
We have exciting news!
We were able to obtain sequences for proteins that are currently
unsolved, but will be released to the Protein Data Bank very soon!
In fact, today's first puzzle will be released to the PDB next week,
so we need you to start folding quickly!
After the first puzzle (released today) expires on August 8th, we will
release another puzzle where you will have more time. The second
protein will not be deposited into the PDB until the end of the month.
We will give you starting models outputted from Rosetta@home, and
since we have no idea which predictions are correct we will try to
give you as diverse a set as possible.
We are very excited to be able to run this blind experiment where the
proteins will be released so soon!
This will be perfect practice for everyone as CASP9 starts next May,
and it will help us figure out what are the best Rosetta models to use
as starting points for Foldit.
