If I understand our challenge correctly, we are intended to form a binding pocket between some known substance and H2N2. It makes very little sense to me to have both compounds mutatable. One is the virus fragment, the other is our detector molecule (or inhibitor or whatever... ) That should have been the only part of this puzzle we could mutate, right? Which half is which?
I don't see how mutating the target protein is useful to solve the science portion of this challenge. I mean we can't actually mutate the virus to make it more sticky to the other molecule in the wild, can we?
