Set amino acid is a command used in GUI recipes in Foldit.
Set amino acid uses two ingredients: amino acid and segments.
The amino acid ingredient is a choice of one of the twenty amino acids used in Foldit.
The segments ingredient can be specified in three ways:
- By Stride
- User Pick
Using "all" for the segments ingredient causes all segments in the puzzle to be changed to the selected amino acid.
In contrast, using "by stride" for the segments ingredient causes only specific segments to be changed. See by stride for more on this option.
The "user pick" option for the segments ingredient means the user is prompted to pick segments by clicking on them when the recipe reaches the command. A user pick is similar to selecting segments in the selection interface, but there are some differences. See user pick for more on this option.
See Segments Ingredient for a complete explanation of specifying segments.
