Description

Note: This puzzle replaces the original Puzzle 1515, which was posted with an erroneous Residue Count Filter. Players may load their saved work from the original Puzzle 1515.



This puzzle challenges players to design a single-chain protein with 75-90 residues. The starting structure has 75 residues, but more can be added at a cost of 32 points per residue. See the puzzle comments for filter details. The Baker Lab will run folding predictions on your solutions for this puzzle, and those that perform well will be synthesized in the lab. Remember, you can use the Upload for Scientists button for up to 5 designs that you want us to look at, even if they are not the best-scoring solutions!

Residue IE Score: Monitors that all PHE, TYR, and TRP residues are scoring well.

SS Design: Penalizes all CYS residues. Penalizes GLY, ALA residues in sheets. Penalizes GLY, ALA, SER, THR in helices.

Residue Count: Penalizes extra residues inserted beyond the starting 75, at a cost of 32 points per residue. Players may use up to 90 residues in total.

Ideal Loops: Penalizes loops that do not conform to preferred ABEGO patterns. Use Auto Structures to see which residues count as "loops."
