I’m making a last minute change to my protein, by moving from the blue variant to the green fluorescent protein. It’s not much of a change because I can’t tell the two apart with the naked eye. Anyway, the protein is rendered at 1.9 angstrom resolution, has 264 amino acids, and has an 11 stranded beta barrel with a coaxial helix, which is where the light forming reaction takes place.
As far as design goes I plan on using aluminum cans and wire and I think I will use a box as a stand and for support when building. I also plan on maybe lighting it up but I haven’t got any good ideas yet.
