Re: Protein Modeling C

Big Question! Despite my frequent searches, I can't seem to find any information on which amino acid sidchains methylate the Cytosine in the DNA sequence. The closest I've come to is Leucine's double-branched methyl group. The problem though is that only one Leucine sidechain faces toward the actua...

Re: Protein Modeling C

Unfortunately we will be using the online version. It was much easier for the IT guy at west point to set it up that way. I hope it doesn't pose too much of an inconvenience. My favored function for displaying a side chain is selecting the desired residues (select (#) or select*(chainletter) and fir...

Re: Protein Modeling C

Sadly this is information you'll have to research for yourself, mostly. That's the point of the event! I wouldn't worry about that link you showed me. The green boxes are highlighting the amino acids that make up the zinc finger domains. Comparison between klf4 and 5 isn't necessary. And i think ERK...

Re: Protein Modeling C

To the best of my knowledge all states are given the same exam from MSOE, but it is within the discretion of the event coordinator to modify the exams.

Re: Protein Modeling C

Hi all, I'm the NYS event coordinator, and a former competitor. If you have any questions between now and Friday, feel free to ask here. Due to some room issues, the event will be run in two time blocks from 5:30-6:20 (teams 2-32) and 6:30-7:20 (teams 33-54). Please try to impound your protein in Th...

Re: New York 2011

For those that check this message board, please inform your teams that protein modeling will be running in two time blocks. Teams 2-32 will compete from 5:30 to 6:20, and teams 33-54 will compete from 6:30-7:20. Please have your pre-build impounded by 5:00 if at all possible. This information will b...

Re: Protein Modeling C [NY Trial]

Yeah you can definitely use other materials. I think you're supposed to use the mini toobers for the backbone of the protein, but beyond that you're only limited by your own creativity!

Re: New York 2010

It was absurd... their parachute went up and just stayed there.. for like... 5 minutes. It went across the river, and so far that they couldn't even see it anymore so they had to call the time. It was amazing. Combination of lucky wind and a good design.

Re: Protein Modeling C [NY Trial]

I ran this event at the RCS invitational... i think it's a great event! It's a huge, but i think it's very much in the creative spirit of science olympiad. How have your experiences been?
