We are working on an algorithm to assign proteins only on the basis of alpha-carbons.
My teacher told me to draw a diagram to represent hydrogen bonds only on the basis of alpha-carbons.
I showed him the following picture:
He said this picture doesn't count, as this diagram shows all the atoms.
I couldn't figure out how to do this without showing oxygen, non-alpha-carbon, and nitrogen atoms.
How can I draw a diagram of hydrogen bonds only on the basis of C-alpha backbone?
