Description

Puzzle "Unsolved monkey virus protein" is from the third year of Foldit, as we look back at the last 5 years. Of course we had to pick this puzzle when looking back at 2010! We are giving you these 10 incorrect NMR models to work on. Every time you reset the puzzle it will cycle through these 10 structures and they are available in the Alignment Tool so you can use partial threading between them. You can read all about why this Foldit puzzle was so important in the puzzle comments.

Note how many player comments that Unsolved monkey virus protein puzzle generated at the time!

My favorite comment is of course this one from spvincent:

…since it turned out to be spvincent's beautiful Foldit prediction that was the first step in solving the crystal structure! :-)
