Description: This is a new type of contact puzzle. It may not look much different on the outside, but the scoring of contacts is taken care of by a special type of constraint that is more appropriate to the information in contact maps. Satisfied contacts will still show up as black squares in the Contact Map, and as green bands in your protein, but the bonus is calculated directly in your score (it contributes to the "Backbone" subscore). We've been working hard to get this into Foldit before the first CASP contact targets, so try out this puzzle and let us know how it feels! Players can load in solutions from Puzzle 885.

Could someone give a step by step explanation of how to load in a solution from one puzzle to another puzzle?
