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.

Yes, but I won't be doing it- my team wants me to focus on the events that actually contribute to our score.

>:U I've contacted the people who said they would supply the materials for building the actual protein model repeatedly to no avail.
my partner and I are going to have to build it out of pipe cleaners now since we have gotten absolutely no response.
how did anyone else get their materials? -_- we are so screwed for this event

I'll ask my coach what he did to get them to send him the materials, but I don't actually know.

It's possible that they will be posted either in the News section of rcsb.pbd.org or on cbm.msoe.edu, but they're unlikely to be posted on the National site.

well they didnt post individual scores, but they posted the keys and guides for the exam, onsite and prebuild models on the cbm.msoe website

im so upset that i couldve added so much more to the prebuild oh well ready for next year
