Three New Pernicious Protein Puzzles

The game is growing quickly, and we developers have a bunch of really cool new features we're working on for all of you. We'll be rolling those out next week. We want to congratulate the top scorers on puzzle 5: dimaio (1), ccarrico (2), ferzle (3), tk (4), and packr2 (5), and puzzle 6: dimaio (1), jeremylp (2), ferzle (3), ccarrico (4), and rusty (5). We've posted puzzles 7, 8, and 9. Please don't play puzzle 7 if you're an expert folder (placed in the top 5 in puzzles 1-6). We're going to experiment with reserving that puzzle for beginning folders.
