Am I the only one who finds 421, the "easy multiple alignment puzzle" far from easy? If I am going to get the hang of this alignment tool then I will need to start on a shorter protein than this one.

The "easy" was simply referring to the fact that all 10 templates thread successfully without having to move the alignments around.

But I agree that with the length of this protein, and that fact that the termini are mostly unaligned, this puzzle is far from easy and I have removed that adjective.

(I think many players who worked on alignment puzzles during CASP9 would agree that, by comparison, this is an easier alignment puzzle that many CASP9 ones!)
