Here are the secondary structure predictions!

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 Glutamate at residue 15 is highly predicted to be part of a sheet. However, the Glutamates at residues 80 & 81 are weakly predicted to be in a helix!

The above predictions are already on the starting model (based on the horizontal lines in the above figure).


If you are a new Foldit player, please make sure you have completed all these tutorials before trying this puzzle:
- lonely sheets,
- lock and lower,
- rebuild,
- structure and rebuild,
- control over clashing.
