Description

We are looking for the best locations to place & design FIVE linked residues on the surface of Influenza H3 Hemagglutinin. We have placed 2 helices on either side so that it will be easier to build scaffolds for your designs. Mutate the 5 sidechains while looking for good hydrophobic pockets or residues to make strong hydrogen bonds to. If you are new to Foldit, make sure you have completed Intro Puzzle 5-2, and 7-1 through 7-4 before trying this puzzle.

This puzzle can only be played in the developer preview. Instructions for switching to dev prev are in the FAQ. However, this puzzle being posted means that either the main client is going to get an update Real Soon, or this puzzle is going to get cancelled (again.)
