2016 Practice Model

Based on the 2015 State Onsite Model using 3v6t.pdb

Directions:

The 2016 Practice Model should represent amino acids 289-356 of chain A of the protein dHax3 based on the PDB file 3v6t.pdb. The key sidechains to display are Histidine 300, Aspartic Acid 301, Histidine 334 and Aspartic Acid 335. This section is 67 amino acids long and will require a toober that is 134cm long at the scale of 1 amino acid = 2cm.

The on-site model is worth 30% of a team's final score for the event. Participants will only have the competition time period to complete their on-site protein model.
