Description Teacher Resources
Even bacteria get infected with viruses! The 2018-2019 Science Olympiad Protein Modeling event explores one way bacteria combat viral infections. Using CRISPR (clustered regularly interspersed palindromic repeats) and Cas proteins, bacteria recognize viral DNA and chop it into pieces. Viruses counterattack using AntiCRISPR. This season’s protein modeling event examines the structures of CRISPR and AntiCRISPR – the war on bugs!

We sell Pre-Build Kits for your convenience. Materials in the kit can be reused for each event this season. The 2018-2019 Pre-Build Kit is based on residues 1-85 of chain B of 5vw1.pdb. Visit the MSOE Center for BioMolecular Modeling's (CBM) website for a variety of resources to help you hone your protein structure and modeling skills, including the Pre-Build Kit's visualization environment. Practice Kits simulate the competition environment and are modeled after the 2015-2016 Regional On-Site Competition. A 3D-printed plaster version of the Practice Kit Model is also available for purchase. Practice Kit story, sample exams and online competition environment are among the materials you will find on the CBM's website.
