Protein Modeling at the Science Olympiad
Protein Modeling is an event at the Science Olympiad, originally developed by the MSOE Center for BioMolecular Modeling, now run in collaboration with the RCSB Protein Data Bank. This event challenges students to explore protein structure and function by creating 3-dimensional models of proteins based on the coordinates from the Protein Data Bank archive.
This site offers all you need to succeed in the 2016 Protein Modeling Events and includes information about all levels of events (from invitational to national).
- Learning materials and model building guides for the various levels of competition
- Specific PDB entry identifiers to access the structural data from the RCSB PDB (a free resource)
- The RCSB PDB Molecule of the Month features relevant to the theme of the various protein modeling targets
- Be sure to also look at the background information, instructions and details at the website developed by MSOE CBM as you prepare for this competition.
