Here is the sequence logo predicted by the SAM server:

H = helix
E = sheet
C = loop (or coil)

The taller the letter at each position, the higher the probability of that specific secondary structure for that amino acid.

For example, the Threonines at residues 20-22 are highly predicted to be part of a sheet. However, the Alanines at residues 94 and 96 are predicted to be in a helix!

The above predictions are already on the starting model (based on the horizontal lines in the above figure).


If you are a new Foldit player, please make sure you have completed all these tutorials before trying this puzzle:

  • lonely sheets,
  • lock and lower,
  • rebuild,
  • structure and rebuild,
  • control over clashing.
