Why this puzzle is only worth 50 points:

The <150 and <15 puzzles are each worth 100 points.
Previously we only posted beginner puzzles for new players (<150 and <15) but then veteran Foldit players could not help new players in chat because they couldn't see the protein.

We could have just posted it as a gallery puzzle for veterans, but we know you like to compete with easy puzzles as well.

So this puzzle is worth half as many global points as regular puzzles.

IF YOU ARE A NEW PLAYER:

If you are new to Foldit, here are detailed instructions to get you started:
http://fold.it/portal/node/988864

HINT: If you are having trouble with this puzzle, try using the "Align Guide" tool:

By right clicking on a region of the protein (not the guide) it will pull up a menu with 6 tools. The bottom right one is "Align Guide". Clicking on it will align the native guide to the region of the protein you selected.
This will help you see what sections on your protein correspond to the guide!
