Description

This symmetric design puzzle has C2 symmetry, with two symmetric chains. No more than 50% of residues may form helices, and all loops must match one of the Ideal Loop Building Blocks found in the Blueprint tool. We've omitted the "Core Exists: Complex" objective to simplify the puzzle, but we still expect that designs with a strong hydrophobic interface (orange sidechains) will score best. See the puzzle comments for Objective 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!

Core Existence: Monomer (max +1700)
Ensures that at least 17 residues are buried in the core of the monomer unit.

SS Design (max +500)
Penalizes all CYS residues. Penalizes GLY, ALA residues in sheets. Penalizes GLY, ALA, SER, THR in helices.

Ideal Loops (max +500)
Penalizes any loop region that does not match one of the Building Blocks in the Blueprint tool. Use "Auto Structures" to see which regions of your protein count as loops.

Secondary Structure (max +500)
No more than 50% of residues may form helices. Extra helices are penalized at 10 points per residue.
