Difficulty: Advanced
Description: Here is one of our newest small proteins that binds the flu virus. It should look very similar to some of the earlier posted flu designs because it is! However, we've added a new interaction at position 295 that we hope will help it target different subtypes of the flu. If you are new to Foldit, make sure you have completed Intro Puzzle 5-2, & 7-1 through 7-4. See the puzzle comments for more info.
