Hey, anyone know what the topic will be for next year?
I'm pretty sure it doesn't get announced officially until rules come out, but they might have a good idea after SOSI. I'm not sure though, and correct me if I'm wrong.
You could try regularly checking the official Protein Modeling website on MSOE CBM, but I'm not sure they'd leak any info about what it is there early...usually they're really good at keeping their materials secret.
Speaking of keeping materials secret...

Hey, I'd like to write an SSSS test on protein modeling. However, since the topic changes every year, I'm not quite sure what would be best to put on a test. I don't think it would be very helpful to use this year's topic since we will never have it again.

What topics/material do you guys like to study over the summer? What would you find the most helpful on a test?

I was thinking about writing a protein modeling test for SSSS as well. Right now, I'm probably just going to focus on things like intermolecular forces and structures/motifs. I think that getting into the real nitty gritty stuff (mechanisms of denaturation, supersecondary structures) will help people prepare for invitationals like MIT and UPenn, where the ES's like to go a little crazy. The protein chemistry section of the UPenn test is a good example of what I want to emulate.

I'm probably going to be writing a protein biochemistry test as well for SSSS with LaTeX formatting, maybe with some in-depth stuff about the levels of structure. I am not very experienced with writing Science Olympiad material questions as this is my first year participating in Science Olympiad, but will try my best to write this test.

You can check this website: http://cbm.msoe.edu/scienceOlympiad/.
It covers basic protein chemistry as well as the theme of the year. (you have to wait until they update the theme to the 2019-2020)
2019 - 2020

I still don't see anything that was updated on MSOE. I would wait until the rule manual gets published for 2020.

The rules get published in less than a week now anyways, so it's not like you're going to have a long wait.

From soinc.org --> "Students will use computer visualization and online resources to construct a physical model of a protein that is being used with CRISPR Cas9 to edit plant and animal genomes. This year's event will focus on modifications to Cas9 that make it useful for base-editing."

That is different than last year's topic, I believe, but at the same time is related, which is pretty cool. Lol, hopefully I can actually understand the biology this year :P

There are rumors about Protein Modeling being a two-person event? Any thoughts?

This was in the draft rules. There was some pushback at SOSI. We'll see.

Why not? One person for the test and one person for the build makes a bunch of sense, tho the build person might be pressed for time if they have to set up JMOL and mark the Toober. Which is probably the only reason there should be 3-person teams

I never understood why it was a 3 person event in the first place, it really doesn't take that long and I've always had plenty of extra time at the end.
