Difficulty: Intermediate
Description: This puzzle is similar to recent design puzzles, but we'd like players to avoid using the Rebuild tool. We suspect that the Rebuild tool has been introducing some problematic backbones into Foldit player designs, so the Rebuild tool has been deactivated in this puzzle. In most cases, the Remix tool can be used as an alternative to Rebuild. See the puzzle comments for filter details. The Baker Lab will run folding predictions on your solutions for this puzzle, and those that perform well will be synthesized in the lab. Remember, you can use the Upload for Scientists button for up to 5 designs that you want us to look at, even if they are not the best-scoring solutions!

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

Core Existence: Ensures that at least 30% of the residues are buried in the core of your design.

Secondary Structure: Checks that no more than 50% of residues are in helices; penalties are incurred if more than 50% of residues form helices.

Secondary Structure Design: Penalizes all CYS residues. Penalizes GLY, ALA, and PRO residues in helices and sheets.

Residue Count: Penalizes extra residues inserted beyond the 65 residue limit. Players may insert up to 10 extra residues.

Ideal Loops: Penalizes loops that do not conform to preferred ABEGO patterns. Use Auto Structures to see which residues count as "loops."

ideal loops impossible

I have no idea how to build ideal loops. I've spend 2-3 days. everything else about protein is fine. submitted to scientists. perhaps scientists can help those of us who don't know what will fix these puzzles.
Please do not give us anything in stick form. I can't read that anymore than I can do an ED puzzle. I need something where I can see AAs delineated
