Thanks, beta_helix.

ED Puzzle 1667 (https://fold.it/portal/node/2007726)
got me thinking about confining the protein inside 
a sphere (for more details, see 
One way to confine the protein inside a sphere would 
be to adapt the recipe BandOntoSphere1.0 (see 
https://fold.it/portal/recipe/102961) using one-way 
bands that only exert forces when stretched past 
their equilibrium distances (for more details, see 
Nevertheless, for now we don't have one-way bands.
What can be done with the tools we do have?

The goal of this Forum thread is to share some ideas
I have had and hopefully get some useful feedback 
about them. I plan to post more sections here as I 
get the time. If you have questions or comments, 
please post them here or send me a Foldit e-mail.

If you do it by hand (I know you don't want to hear that lol) perhaps some bands in space that pull towards the center would work. Sort of like GAB BIS program or Rav3n 's hydropuller recipe. I'm not a coder, but it might work
