Here is the sequence logo predicted by the SAM server:

H = helix
E = sheet
C = loop (or coil)

The taller the letter at each position, the higher the probability of that specific secondary structure for that amino acid.

For example, the Valines at residues 7 & 68 are highly predicted to be part of a helix. However, the Valines at residues 31, 35, 43, 52, 88, 97, 101 & 120 are highly predicted to be in a sheet.

much smoother movement

this one is much smoother to move around and is wiggling nicely (in my opinion of course)

That is great to hear, spmm!

That is exactly why we posted this puzzle and this is what we are trying to find out!

Thank you for the feedback, and thank you for your patience in playing the same puzzle back to back!

Please keep us posted...

Just out of curiosity...

Would it be possible to allow for loading our own solutions from 626?

Sorry infjamc

That is impossible to do once a puzzle has already been posted.
