Description: This puzzle challenges players to design a single-chain protein with 60-65 residues. The starting structure has 60 residues, but more can be inserted at a cost of 32 points per residue. 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!

Objectives

Residue IE Score (max +500)
Monitors that all PHE, TYR, and TRP residues are scoring well.

SS Design (max +500)
Penalizes all CYS residues. Penalizes GLY, ALA residues in sheets. Penalizes GLY, ALA, SER, THR in helices.

Residue Count (max +160)
Penalizes extra residues inserted beyond the starting 60, at a cost of 32 points per residue. Players may use up to 65 residues in total.

Secondary Structure (max +500)
No more than 10% of residues may form helices. Extra helices are penalized at 10 points per residue.
