Description: Learning about Protein Folding

Greetings students!
The objective of this group is to gain an understanding of protein folding by playing a game designed to mimic molecular interactions in a way that gets you "inside" of a protein.

We will first get accustomed to the basics by learning about the tools of the game, which are designed as real-life molecular rules and interactions. You must understand how and why things can/cannot happen and the reasons behind them. Some of the tools help with maintaining key areas (secondary structures) so there is not a lot of micromanaging of single amino acids.

Your task is to complete through level 4 in the time frame. Anything extra you do can be added to your lab reports.
