How should I go about labeling my protein? I am totally new to this event. Any insight would be much appreciated.

what should be on my cheat sheet. I was thinking of maybe putting jmol commands, as well as information regarding the written test, any advice on what I should put on my cheat sheet?

I think they mean how to label/differentiate add-ons such as sidechains, DNA, molecules, etc.

can anyone send me a picture of their pre-model, or recommend which add-ons to add. If not, can you at least direct me to a source or guide me to where I can learn more about which add-ons are important. I was put into this event just 4 days before my comp, so I really need help :D. Thanks!

On the CBM Website there are links to the original research papers for the AcrIIA4 protein. I think you should check those out. As far as which ones are important, you should use your own discretion after reading the papers and choose the ones you think are best.

I need something to make the pre-built model. There is not enough time for something to arrive from online, so I need something from a retail store. Can you please
suggest/link something that could work (Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart, Target, etc.) Thank you so much

12-gauge dimensional house wire actually works quite well. I've seen a lot of teams use that as their backbone. If you want to add side chains, you can then wrap pipe cleaners around it. Good luck with your comp

Does the final alpha helix begin at Glu71, or Glu70?

For those that participated in the past, how much time are we given on the written test and how much time are we given on the building?
Or do you get to distribute the time yourself?
