Summary

Name: Protein Design Sandbox
Status: Active

Difficulty: Beginner
Description: Experiment with protein design! We've disabled many of the restrictions in normal Science puzzles, so players have access to all protein designs tools, and may insert and delete any number of residues. Foldit scientists do not check the solutions from this puzzle, and playing this puzzle will not affect your global or category rankings.

Two common protein design Objectives are available, but they will not award any bonuses or penalties. The Core Existence Objective checks to see if 30% of residues are buried in the protein core, away from the water surrounding the protein. The Ideal Loops Objective looks for loops with problematic backbone folds. If you build an especially large protein, try disabling these Objectives to improve Foldit's performance.

About time!

I was wondering when something like this would turn up. Glad to see an unrestricted proving ground for future projects.
