I wonder why there were so much contact map puzzles in CASP11 and almost no one in foldit afterwards.

I liked this kind of puzzle.

It would be good to have some to develop better scripts.

Right now, we have about a year to get ready for the next CASP competition.

+1 Would love to have time to work on several of these before the next CASP season.

Maybe one or more Contact Map Contests would be helpful.

I think someone (jmbrownlee333?) said in Vet Chat yesterday that there were Contact Maps for known structures on the Baker Lab site. Please post links to these maps and structures if you can find them. Perhaps they would make good Contact Map puzzles or contests.
