While running the classic Acid Tweeker script, the output shows the number of possible positions (rotamers) of each sidechain it manipulates.
When I ran this script on the Symmetry puzzle, amino acid # 14 (lysine) was shown to have 328 possible positions! (See attached photo.)
Now I know that lysine is the contortionist of the sidechains, but I don't think it can bend *that many* ways.
A bug, perhaps, introduced with the newest update? I have never seen this, before tonight.
