Difficulty: Advanced
Description: Mini-CASP 13 is another 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. Since we have no idea where to even start, we are giving you an extended chain to see what you come up with. Good luck freestyle folding! The secondary structure prediction is posted in the puzzle comments.

Secondary structure prediction results:

Here is the sequence logo predicted by the SAM server.

H = helix
E = sheet
C = loop (or coil)

The taller the letter at each position, the higher the probability of that specific secondary structure for that amino acid.

For example, the amino acid Valine at residue 109 is highly predicted to be part of a helix. However, the Alanine at residue 26 is predicted to have an equal probability of being anything!

It was on hold until the previous puzzles expired!

we don't want too many puzzles up at a time...

normally I put a new puzzle up manually, but since the 4 puzzles ended on a Sunday I didn't want to forget to put up the new puzzle (that's why it was unreleased and set to post automatically).

I should have another puzzle up later today as well...

Take care!
