Once you memorize that, you have a basic understanding.
You should also have a good understanding of how DNA works.
For an interactive CRISPR, that can be found here:

Hope that helps! Good luck!

For the harder ones like MIT invitational that I practiced on, I noticed that these concepts were literally found on Klein Organic Chemistry textbook chapter 25 for amino acids. I also read MIT OCW lecture notes 5.07 and 7.012 about it just to get a better understanding.
Thanks! This looks like it will really help!

For the on site build is it on MSOE or do they use the JMOL program? If it is the JMOL program, isn't it the same functions as MSOE?

It's an either/or. The syntax is the same, so it shouldn't be an issue either way. I think the jmol offline version is meant to be a backup.

For experienced Protein Modeling people, how did you manage to finish building the on site protein within the time limit while maintaining accuracy? Our group didn't practice a lot and seems to be a bit slow.

You practice a lot. Usually, the main problem I have is running out of material (because I make sections too big), but I can just refold the protein tighter in ~5 minutes. Speed is the key; trying to get it perfect the first time is usually a lost cause (for me at least). Also, only one person should be folding it, and only one.

I just competed at my regional competition, and the pre-build was taken out completely for us as well.

It wasn't removed for regionals, but it has been for socal state
does anyone know the rationale behind it? Im guessing it's cause having something prebuild be so much of your score is kinda unfair

Also study RNA structure so you know the difference. that was on the regional test for me as well as knowing JMOL pretty well.

Where are you finding that it is/isn't included in your regionals? Seems strange to include it in invites but not regionals..

Thanks eagerlearner and all for the info! What would you recommend I put on my cheat sheet, and what would you recommend I memorize?
