Description: This is the eighth puzzle in the poly-proline helix design series! The starting structure is slightly longer than previous rounds, with a 90 residue protein and a 6 residue helix. All residues are mutable, and we have reset the proline reference energy to 16.4 to allow for a greater diversity of residues. Keeping all buried polars satisfied is still a key component of a good structure, as well as a hydrophobic core and well defined secondary structures. Happy folding!
