Description: The second Mini-CASP target is a de-novo (or ab-initio) target. This means that there is no solved structure that has a similar sequence that we can start our predictions from. This is exciting because template-free targets are rare (in CASP8 only 11 of the 128 targets were free-modeling targets) so we are lucky to be able to predict this. Since we have no idea where to even start, we are giving you an extended chain to see what you come up with. This might not be easy, because this protein has 102 residues. The secondary structure shown is just a prediction, so it might not be correct, feel free to modify it as well. We will release the lowest energy Rosetta@home predictions for this target as puzzles later this week. Until then, good luck freestyle folding!
