While playing puzzle 2137, I tried using the Pick Sidechains tool (https://fold.it/portal/node/2006271) to move some sidechains into places more occupied by the Electron Density. This led to some questions/suggestions about this tool: (1) Are the Rotamers in the Sidechain Picker menu listed with the most prevalent/common/preferred ones at the top and the least prevalent/common/preferred ones at the bottom? Do the ones at the top generally score higher than the ones at the bottom? (2) In the Sidechain Picker menu, some of the rotamers listed have the same names. This can be confusing if I am taking notes and then later want to redo certain things. It would be helpful if for each rotamer listed, there was a number indicating how far down in the list it is. Then a list like: mtt, tpp, tmm, tmt, mtt, tpp could instead be labelled as: 1 mtt, 2 tpp, 3 tmm, 4 tmt, 5 mtt, 6 tpp and it would be easy to record that I picked rotamer 1 mtt instead of 5 mtt, or rotamer 2 tpp instead of 6 tpp. Thanks for reading!
