What's the point? Can't this just be automated using recipes?

Humans have an ability to visually process protein shapes and see what "looks wrong"

After some time, some folders find they need to move beyond recipes to "hand-folding"


Veteran folders express sentiments like:

  • " I'd like to caution newbies here that having a good recipe does not mean that you can just use it & become a good folder"
  • "Team AD believes that recipes are only part of what you need - the basics are hand work"
  • " Look at the recipes while they run - watch the behavior slider - learn from them"
  • "the other key is when to use a recipe"
  • "remember that, at best, a recipe only is a time shortcut"
