Foldit, the Protein Folding “Game”


Foldit, the Protein Folding “Game”

“I came across this game recently and wanted to share, as I think it’s worth your time. And, it’s free.

In Foldit, you learn the real-world rules of how proteins fold as they’re made inside your body. After a series of tutorials to teach you the few basic rules, you’re unleashed on the world of actual protein folding presented as a puzzle to tease out. You will even attempt to solve proteins science hasn’t figured out yet.

And the crazy thing is, by playing you can help discover the true shape of real-world proteins, adding to scientific knowledge.”

That is so neat! :D Go get the beta! It’s available for Windows, Linux, and Mac users alike
