Do you guys think that putting chunks of CRISPR Cas9 sequences on the model would be a good idea? Like attaching small lengths of toobers to anti-Crispr, wherever it is bonded to Cas9.

Guys: is your prebuild toober that you ordered correct? ours is 164 cm.
Also: how do you identify at which residue the helix/sheet starts/ends?

Anyone have any ideas for how to display the cas9? Should I just take a knife to a chunk of styrofoam or something lol

You should only do so if those parts are important to how the Anti-CRISPR protein disables the function of the Cas9 protein.

If you ordered your kit from 3D Molecular Designs, it should be correct. In the Online Prebuild Environment, Once you have narrowed it down to the part you'd like to model, if you wave your mouse over the structure, it'll tell you which residue you are waving over.

You aren't required to display the Cas9 protein itself, but you can if you want. Since it's a creative addition, you are at liberty to display it in any form you would like. If you think sticking a knife in some styrofoam is a good way to do it, then go ahead.

Yes.

I measured mine out to be 85 residues.


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 twisted a little, that will take up some length. Pull it all the way out, so you're sure it's at its maximum length. If it's still only 168cm, you should contact the MSOE people and ask for a replacement.
