Protein Data Base (PDB) Lab,
1. PDB web site

2. On Protein data base Search for SARS-Cov2, visualize the spike protein, 6CRZ. Then look for the receptor binding domain: 2GHV. You will build a model of this region.

3. Build a structure that is mostly the backbone with only the important amino acids added. In a short description of your model, Be sure to explain how the function of the protein is related to the structure and explain how the added amino acids are involved.

4. Give a brief summary of the chemistry that drives protein folding.

Bring the model to class, submit the report to Turnitin.com.
