Fold this coronavirus protein! This is a portion of a larger protein encoded in the viral genome of SARS-CoV-2. It is encoded in a region of the genome called NSP6, but the protein's structure and function are still unknown. If we knew how this protein folds, we might be able to figure out its exact function. The puzzle's starting structure shows SS predictions from PSIPRED, and hints which parts of the protein might fold into helices or sheets. Refold this protein to find high-scoring solutions, which will tell us how this protein is most likely to fold!
