Foldit in the News

On July 17, four science experts served as witnesses at the U.S. Senate Committee at a Commerce, Science, and Transportation hearing. Mariette DiChristina specifically called out Foldit in her testimony. Read the full text at the link.

Additionally, Good Magazine talked about our buddies over at Nanocrafter recently, but also focused a bit on how Foldit paved the way for these collective intelligence efforts.

Puzzle 935 Released

Due to community request, we've released Puzzle 935. This CASP11 refinement target is an extremely large 251 residue TIM barrel and is set to expire on July 14.

Keep in mind, we know this is a hefty puzzle and not all computers may be powerful enough to run it. This puzzle (like our other "Extra Credit" offerings) is worth only 10 points as a result! Still, we'd love to hear your feedback and see what you can do with it. Happy folding!
