For the on site build, does every regional choose their own special sequence to model the protein or is it the same across the entire nation? I am asking this question because I saw the onsite build instructions from the MIT invitational.
Also, how do you really practice for the on site build considering the fact that it is now 40%?

Me and my partner have just went along separating the protein that’s usually given to us for onsite into roughly 100 residue sections.
We just go along and practice timed building of significant structures.

Just a theory but it looks like the turns are the parts between beta pleats specifically

Exams (written, prebuild rubric, onsite) are standardized across the board. Unless things have changed from previous years, the onsite should be the same for every regionals and every states tournament.
Div D! I really like chem, oceanography, and nail polish--not in that order.

The MIT rubric was different from my regionals one though so invites are not standardized.

How did you figure out which amino acid sidechains were significant to the protein during the onsite build?

They will usually tell you. It's just up to you to put it in the right spot and orient it correctly.

So as of now, I can use the MIT invitational as practice correct? Also, for the prebuild, did any of you attach DNA or other nucleic acids?

I didn't add DNA, but was curious as to where one would even add it...

Same. I didn't really see how you could add it. All they mention is their interactions with RuvC, CTD, and PAM domain that have residues.
