Er, I meant an FAQ. sorry about that
That FAQ is for Forensics, but something similar probably applies.
I found the clarification: https://www.soinc.org/when-rules-say-ea ... ring-sheet. It is page linked to the question asked on the FAQ for Protein Modeling, so I guess it applies to both Forensics and Protein Modeling.

That just means the next link on the page belongs to Protein Modeling haha

Protein Modeling has no clarifications so far

When I read the 2 research papers, it mentions quite a few side chains. Does that mean I have to put every single one or some that are the most important ones?
Also, are any of you going to make a protein attached to ACRIIA4 which includes the RuvC, CTD, and TOPO domain? For me, I was considering doing the PAM duplex and the nucleic acids.
Sorry I have so many questions. This is my first year :P

I wish you a good year then! :) :) :)
I would put about 6 side chains on there, and mark out important residues. Residues can be colored to show importance and you can you the given side chains to attach. I have all the important residues and side chains on there for a total of 7 side chains (but grouped into the functional groups they'd only count for 3 bonus features) and 14 residues highlighted (again, only counting for 2 features).Make sure to use the supports, or your model will bend wildly out of control.
Also: Don't feel bad if a proctor misgrades yours. Has happened every competition I've been to. It just be like that sometimes.

I submitted an official question to the soinc site. They said it takes about a month for them to respond, hopefully that will clarify things with the rules on notes.

Does anyone have advice on coloring toober sections? I have seen paint, colored tape, and markers used. I'm curious if there's a better method and whether or not to color before or after folding. Any suggestions or insights would be great.
Thanks in advance!!

Hello everybody! I'm very new to this event and know very little about it, and I was wondering if there was any specific sources that really helped you to get a good grasp on this event.

you should definitely take a really good look at the rules, and also visit the CBM MSOE website here.

Did everyone see the Rules Clarification posted yesterday? One sheet of paper per team.

In the past they have used the in-browser Jmol.
