Through the eyes of a scientist - Puzzle 1018
Baker Lab scientist bkoep recently sat down with Foldit players' designs from Puzzle 1018 for a visual inspection, which is the first step in our analysis of Foldit designs. Join us as we take a critical look at the latest symmetric proteins designed by Foldit players and voice some thoughts about the really cool things Foldit players are demonstrating in protein design!
In the video, you'll also hear brief discussion on the following topics:
- hydrogen bond networks
- core packing
- hydrophobic interfaces
- special considerations when designing with GLY, CYS, and MET residues
