- ask for tips in global when you think you doesn't understand something.

Make sure you have followed these tutorials:
- lonely sheets,
- lock and lower,

- structure and rebuild,
- control over clashing

before starting this puzzle.

Overwhelmed by possibilities

This is a pretty fascinating puzzle. It wasn't long before I had a fairly natural looking fold that ALSO had a tight symmetric cluster of 4 cysteines and 2 histidines. I'm not sure how to distribute my bridges, or how many bridges I should have. As my score increased, things started to wander apart. Any suggestions for how the active site should look?
