I did that before regionals, invitationals and state. :D
Gotta say, it was good practice before the on-site build.

Also, to whichever Wisconsin team put mini pigs on their model, I tip my hat to you.

You should have a key that describes what represents what in your model, and a paragraph or so explaining why you put in what you did and how it's relevant to the protein's function.

alrite that helps and is there anything else we put besides sidechains and associated molecules like disulfide or hydrogen bonds

You can show anything that you think helps make the function of the protein clearer. Disulfide bonds could be useful- since they're vital in the tertiary structure of the protein- but hydrogen bonds are probably mostly unnecessary. Use your own judgement, though.

They will give you very precise instructions for how to set up the on-site environment, or else it will already be open for you. It will look exactly like the Jmol environment for the pre-build that's available on the MSOE site, except instead of being 5HMG, it will be 2HU4.
