Description

This is a throwback puzzle to the early days of Foldit. Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in mammals. It is the main protein of connective tissue in animals. We are revisiting old Foldit puzzles so we can see how useful the recent additions to the game have been. Players will NOT be able to load in any previous solutions for these puzzles.

_____________
If you want to fold proteins, know that there are many ways to play and this variety is the main value of Foldit:

  • try all puzzles not only "beginner" ones,
  • fold first the ones you like the most,
  • try by yourself to understand what works and what doesn't,
  • ask for tips in global when you think you doesn't understand something.

Make sure you have followed these tutorials:

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

before starting this puzzle.
