Description: This is a partition puzzle for Phase Two of the Partition Tournament! The starting structure is a design by Galaxie from Phase One of the tournament, and is now vulnerable to challenges. Players can challenge the design by playing this puzzle and refolding the starting structure into other high-scoring structures. The starting structure is marked with secondary structure predictions from PSIPRED, and may give clues about how this protein could be refolded. This design will ultimately be evaluated by how well it withstands challenges, as measured by the partition function. See the blog for more details about the Protein Design Partition Tournament.

Hi Bruno, would you mind

Hi Bruno, would you mind explaining your "Target" comments a bit more for the non-experts (like me)?

Hi Actiasluna

The first target is the score of the original pose (this is the score that you see when you reset the puzzle). If you get more than this, this is bad news for the first round.

The smaller target is the minimum needed in order to figure in the partition function. Smaller scores are not really challenging the original design.
