    I need to draw the following molecule (using the lewis condensed line structure).

    It consists of two strands aligned one on tope of the other w/7 amino acids on each strand. The side chains of the aminso acids are all pointing into the space between the two strands. (strand #1 consists of the followinf (from left to right) Lysine, Serine, Lecine, Phenylalaine,Cystein, Valine, Aspartic Acid w/ the N terminal on lysine and the c terminal on aspartic acid. Strand #2 conssits of the following (left 2 right) Apasrtic Acid, Tyrosine, Isoleucine, Valine, Cysteine, Leucine, Glutamic Acid.The N terminal on Aspartic acid and the c terminal on Glutamic acid. I also need to identify loactions (if any) suitable for formation of :

    -hydrophobic pockets
    -salt bridges
    -covalent cross bonds
    -coordination bridges
    -sites favorable to hydrogen bonding
