Re: Protein Modeling C

Do any of you know how to download JMOL on the computer? I tried but I get a folder of applet files that I don't know which to click on. I thought it would be downloaded as an application on the computer. 1) First, go to the sourceforge website to download Jmol - https://sourceforge.net/projects/jm...

Re: Protein Modeling C

meaning that our toober will have to be 19 feet long(228cm).. That seems a lot larger than previous years
228cm converts to 7.48031 feet, I think you accidently calculated inches instead of cm. Just don't want you to think the model is 19 feet long, that would be a lot.

Re: Protein Modeling C

CBM wesbite states: The 2019-20 Pre-Build Model should represent amino acids 31 - 145 of chain A of the cytidine deaminase protein based on the PDB file 5keg.pdb. This section will require a toober that is 228cm long at the scale of 1 amino acid = 2cm. NOTE: This is a different structure/sequence t...

Re: Codebusters C

Nope. That's all they gave us. I have the answer key and everything i just dont know how they got that answer.
You sure that was all they gave you? I don't think solving a Vigenère without any hints or a crib is even possible. The key could be literally anything...

Re: Protein Modeling C

Both years seem to indicate we can take 3 pages, but it wasn't allowed last year anywhere I went. With the same wording imo, I would say 1 page. It's interesting that Soinc bolded the word participant in this year's rules, I feel like that means they want to emphasize to people that it is 1 page fo...

Re: Codebusters C

Anyone have some good tips for solving patristocrats without any hints? Looking for word patterns and replacing letters based on frequency still fails on some problems for me. Patristocrats without hints are the one thing I'm terrified of...

Re: Protein Modeling C

This year they make it clear that each participant may bring a paper, so up to 3 papers per full team. Last year the rules were unclear and at least for me most supervisors only allowed 1 paper per team.

Re: Protein Modeling C

I think it will be testing the competitors ability to use jmol effectively within the time limit. So maybe a lot of identification questions? I can't think of how they could make identification questions hard though as Jmol is pretty straightforward. I feel like the questions would lean more toward...

Re: Protein Modeling C

Okay, yes (sorry this is taking so long to marinate in my brain) but the toober is only 168 cm long in the kit. 168/2 = 84....? So we must not include the actual residue of either 1 or 85 correct? You absolutely need to include 1 and 85. Make sure the Toober is completely unwound. Sometimes if if's...

Re: Protein Modeling C

How do we figure out which terminal is which? I'm a bit confused. Also, any general tips to start out? (Make sure you understand the event thoroughly, here's a good place to start: http://cbm.msoe.edu/scienceOlympiad/participantHome.php ) Research I suggest first doing some research on proteins in ...
