Partial threading. I know HOW

Partial threading. I know HOW to do it (mostly), but do not know how to use it in an advantageous way.

And how to get the Residue IE bonus. I usually end up with the "There are 0 residues that are scoring too low." message. Mildly annoying.

You get the bonus of 50 pts if you dont have any of the 3 big hydrophobics Tryp, Tyr and Phe.

There's more I'd like to see,

There's more I'd like to see, but here's the thing:-

You don't really want to cover basic techniques, as this would seem to duplicate the tutorials. On the other hand, advanced techniques from team players could be considered as a transgression of those teams, unless those teams are willing to share. But that's a whole other ball of wax.

Advanced uses: banding, cutpoints, low ci, mutating, partial threading, manual rebuilding. Advanced ways to use edit boxes of scripts. Finishing techniques. For now....

I would love to see how other people approach the denovo puzzles, especially when restricted to only using GUI scripts.

Loop wrangling

Be great to see how people do this properly. I can see where I want them to go but they are too stiff to move directly to the (plausible) position, even at low CI.
