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.

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

Also: how do you identify at which residue the helix/sheet starts/ends?
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.
