For this target, the CASP11 organizers have provided "sparse" experimental data about possible contacts in the protein. Contacts are scored with the Contact Map filter in this puzzle, and there is an upper limit of 2250 possible points from the filter. The starting structure is an extended chain, and secondary structure predictions can be found below in the puzzle comments.

For our last WeFold CASP11 Target, 119 residue T0855, we are starting you off with 4 different server predictions selected by our WeFold collaborators. Resetting the puzzle will cycle between each aligned model and they are available in the Alignment Tool so you can use partial threading between them. Secondary structure predictions are in the puzzle comments.

For this 136 residue CASP11 Target, T0848, we are starting you off with 2 different server predictions selected by our WeFold collaborators. Resetting the puzzle will cycle between each aligned model and they are available in the Alignment Tool so you can use partial threading between them. Additional info and secondary structure predictions are in the puzzle comments.

For this 152 residue CASP11 Target, T0853, we are giving you 3 different server predictions selected by our WeFold collaborators. Resetting the puzzle will cycle through each model and they are available in the Alignment Tool so you can use partial threading between them. Secondary structure predictions are in the puzzle comments.

This small unsolved Arabidopsis protein only has 59 residues and negatively controls the biosynthesis of starch in plants and regulates leaf and seed composition. We are giving you 5 starts for this puzzle. Resetting the puzzle will cycle through these 5 Zhang server predictions. They are also in the Alignment Tool so you can use partial threading as well as an extended chain. For players with fewer than 150 global points.

This is a small symmetric trimer design puzzle. A symmetric protein relies not only on how well folded each part is, but also on how well they interface together. Your changes will be reflected in the symmetric unit. Make sure you have completed Intro Puzzle 5-2, and 7-1 through 7-4. For players with fewer than 150 global points.

We are giving you a helix positioned over a hydrophobic groove where binding occurs in nature. You can mutate any residue on the helix but none on the native binding region. Try to look for favorable hydrophobic interactions in this groove while maintaining the helix. For players with fewer than 150 global points.

In electron density puzzles, we give you some experimental data to help you find the correct fold. This data takes the form of an electron density, and appears in game as a guide. You can adjust the guide visualization by going to [Actions]>[Electron Density]. For players with fewer than 150 global points.
