Difficulty: Intermediate
Description: This is a symmetric hexamer design puzzle with 70 residues; there will be six symmetric chains to manage. This puzzle includes the H-bond Network Filter, but requires that networks are at least 75% satisfied! See the puzzle comments for more details. The Baker Lab will run folding simulations on your solutions for this puzzle, and those that perform well will be synthesized in the lab. This puzzle will remain open for two weeks.

BONUS: It's winter here in Seattle, but we still haven't seen any snow! Submit your best "protein snowflake" using the Upload for Scientists button and the Foldit team will post their favorite snowflakes on the blog! Check out previous Foldit protein snowflakes here!

Residue IE Score: Monitors that all PHE, TYR, and TRP residues are scoring well.

HBond Network: Rewards networks comprising at least three hydrogen bonds, with 1-12 hydrogen bonds spanning the dimer interface. In addition, at least 75% of all polar atoms in the network must make hydrogen bonds.

Core Existence: Monomer: Ensures that at least 21 residues are buried in the core of the monomer unit.

Core Existence: Complex: Ensures that at least 168 residues are buried in the core of the entire complex (including the interface between monomer units).

H-Bond score

It would have been nice to know that the allowed max score for H-Bonds is 1200pts
