I am completely new to this and am just trying to feel my way around. I want to submit an 11 animo acid sequence as a contest and see if it will fold into a helix. I'm basically just trying to test the waters here.

So I created a contest called Helix. However when I open my Foldit program it only shows 1 contest available. Shouldn't I be able to see my contest and then add the 11 amino acid sequence that I want to fold?

I believe I discovered the solution myself. It appears that you need to finish the beginning puzzles first, then you're eligible to make your own contest and download it to your computer to work on.

That's what I concluded any ways.
