Description

This is a small symmetric trimer design puzzle. A symmetric protein relies not only on how well folded each part is, but also on how well they interface together. Your changes will be reflected in the symmetric unit. Make sure you have completed Intro Puzzle 5-2, and 7-1 through 7-4. For players with fewer than 150 global points.
