A protein model created by a participant
in the 2012 Protein Modeling Event
The Protein Modeling Event is a Science Olympiad event developed by the MSOE Center for BioMolecular Modeling. To compete successfully, teams will explore the CBM Participant Resources and be able to:
- Understand basic features of protein structure
- Explore and manipulate protein structures using the online protein visualization webpages
- Create physical models using a foam covered wire called a Mini-Toober
Use the resources listed below to hone your protein structure and modeling skills. Each section builds on previous sections, so it is suggested that you go through the resources in the order listed.
Section 1 - An Overview of the Event Section 2 - This Year's Theme Section 3 - Building Your Physical Protein Models
