This puzzle's deadline has been extended by 1 week

Due to the new filters slowing things down, and since there are many design puzzles up, we've extended this deadline by 1 week.

GUI Mutate behavior

FYI: I ran mutate for 8 hours with filters on, and at the end, I have "Too many polar residues in the core" and 19 invalid residues. (monomer is all helices).

The big ol' helix wins... again... and again.

Just want to report to the devs that once again, even with the filters, a megahelix scores far higher than any realistic structure.

For those that missed the scientist chat

You can find it here:

A summary about this issue is that in symmetry these helices are boring, but they're stable. So it's not super surprising that they score well.
