How much is nucleic acids tested on protein modeling? I saw in the rules manual that they cover macromolecules (e.g. nucleic acids and proteins).

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

Based on my knowledge, I would say just know the relations between nucleic acids and proteins (e.g. the Central Dogma). They might ask like post-translational modifications and stuff like that. It will comprise of a small minority most likely. Most specifically, they could also ask for interactions between them within the APOBEC3A/ssDNA complex.

This sounds kind of extra but would any of you recommend Lehninger Principles of Biochemistry? I went on a Scioly wiki link about protein modeling that referenced to chapters in Lehninger.
I recommend it! It's a good textbook and it contains some chapters on protein structure and folding. It goes very in depth and I personally enjoyed reading this book. However, I would still seek out other sources besides Lehninger's book, like practice exams, the MSOE website, and any reputable sources on the web.

It depends on the exam. However, if it's on the rules, it's fair game. The more you know, the better. Knowing nucleic acids will also help you understand CRISPR function better, so it doesn't hurt to go in depth when studying nucleic acids.

Thanks! What reputable online sources are there asides from MSOE and PDB?

Does anyone have any tips or resources for finding "key sidechains, substrates, nucleic acids and so forth" for the prebuild? I'm getting a little stuck on this. Thank you! :)

Hi,
A very basic question. How many students can compete in this event? 2 or 3?

Thanks

Both 2 people and 3 people can compete in this event, however the maximum is 3 people. So you could only have 1, 2, or 3 people competing, but not 4.
