Math 100 student’s protein folding research

Madison Koskey had the highest score in the class on this project task:

Fold an idealized protein known as S64 to obtain a highest possible score in the hydrophobic-polar protein folding model in three dimensions.

This problem was studied by Lesh, Mitzenmacher, and Whitesides (2003).

Above we see Madison’s intricate folding of S64 which earned a score of 27.
