If you are new to Foldit, here are detailed instructions to get you started:
If you want to fold proteins, know that there are many ways to play and this variety is the main value of Foldit :
- try all puzzles not only "Beginners" ones,
- fold first the ones you like the most,
- try it by yourself to understand what works and what doesn't,
- ask for tips in global chat when you think you don't understand something.
Make sure you have followed these tutorials:
- Lonely Sheets,
- Lock and Lower,
- Structure and Rebuild,
- Control over Clashing,
- Alignin' Sequences
before starting this puzzle.
The 5 starts are the results of a very successful program to find protein structure(Zhang server of Zhang lab)with some modifications.
You can access the 5 starts by resetting the puzzle or by the alignment tools.
Try the 5 starts or the ones you find more likely.
You can also mix some starts with partial threading : http://foldit.wikia.com/wiki/The_Alignment_Tool
