Was I correct?
Here is my question:
What is one unique property of aromatic amino acids?

I failed 2020. Hope I will do better in 2021.

This sounds stupid but how do you click to see hidden stuff on this website?

The hide tags are currently broken (although apparently a fix is on its way), so you can't click them to find out what is inside of them like you normally can. Instead, use spoiler tags (the ones that look like this!) to accomplish basically the same thing.

P.S. You can use Inspect Element or the like to find out what is hidden in the hide tag for now, or you can use samy-oak-tree's Better Scioly.org Forums Extension/Bookmarklet.

This is kinda dead so ig i'll restart it

What jmol command(s) would you use if you wanted to find out how many sulfur atoms were in a structure?

Yay for less deadness! Let's make this less dead together :)
I would use select sulfur and the JMol would output the number of atoms
Cytidine deaminase changes what nucleotide to what other nucleotide, and what is the importance of this modification?

Answer: Cytidine Deaminase changes C to U through removal of the amine group from cytidine. This is important because it elimates the need for dsDNA breaks, which causes formation of indels because HDR competes with NHEJ.

Well you caught me off guard... haha logically glutamic acid would donate protons at a high pH causing negative charge? What JMol command would be used to calculate structural supports? Bonus: calculate these for the protein 2MJ1.pdb
