||Is that...?! Yes, it is! It's TNT! We've got a very energetic, high profile molecule for you guys to bind. Sure, we already have antibodies that bind TNT, but they're very expensive to make. Wouldn't it be better if we just designed an easy to express protein that bound TNT? We could use it to make cheap detectors and sensors so we can look for TNT contamination or explosives! Brilliant! Remember, there is more than one way to play these design puzzles since we look at all the designs and the best scoring design may not necessarily be the most useful/promising.
