I would like to know something about the model we have been given. And I suspect i am not alone.
Can you tell us what the resolution is on the ED map?
I am also curious about the R factor. Is it below 30%? Below 25%? (I confess to being a nerd, and a once-upon-a-time crystallographer.) But i think the community could benefit from some notion of how good the model is, and where we are in the process.)
The resolution of this dataset is 1.8 Å.
The R factor is below 30%, so the starting model is pretty close to the correct structure.
bkoep mentioned this in chat: "Ah, actually, the UMich students are not involved in this challenge. I forgot to mention that in the puzzle description. For this puzzle, we're more interested in how Foldit solutions compare to those of expert crystallographers."
