Tryptophan / TRP / W (EnzDes coloring)

Tryptophan (TRP or W) is one of the more hydrophobic amino acids. Its double-ring shape is unique in Foldit.

In the Foldit Lua interface, the functions structure.GetAminoAcid and structure.SetAminoAcid use lowercase "w" for tryptophan.

For more, see Tryptophan on wikipedia.
