It looks like in Puzzle 883, bands made using the Contact Map all form with strength 1 and length 3.5 Angstroms between alpha-carbons for the segments of the contact. You can tell if you view them with CPK, stick, and show stubs or show all sidechains. Forming bands between alpha-carbons seems odd considering the many comments made by bkoep in http://fold.it/portal/node/997478#comment-27181 about beta-carbons and Contact Maps. Is the Contact Map in Puzzle 883 behaving as desired?
