Description: We are giving you a server-only CASP9 target whose structure has not been released yet. You have 9 server predictions as starting models, so anytime you reset you will randomly start with one of the 9 models. You can also access each model individually by using the Alignment Tool, as all 9 server models are in your template reserve as well as an extended chain. Note that although the sequences for each model are identical in the Alignment Tool, threading will result in very different starting structures.

Problem alignment no.10?

It looks like this alignment leads to an unstructured protein

You are correct.

"all 9 server models are in your template reserve as well as an extended chain."

The 10th alignment, called "extend", is simply an extended chain with the same sequence.

It was added there by request, feel free to ignore it.
