Welcome!

We are a very large and very active folding team, with many highly ranked players. We have team members who can work with you if your interest lies in scripting, and members who are experts in every stage of the game.

We're here to help you become the best Foldit player that you can be! By working with each other, we hope to be an important part of helping science to help all.

This team is temporarily open by invitation only - but you can join easily. Talk to some of our members in global before you make a decision to join, to see if you think that we would be a good fit for you.

If you think that you'd like to join, please write a message to Susume. Our main restriction is that we will not allow any clones by any members of our group, other than irc only accounts. We also ask that you have completed at least a week of folding - this gives you a chance to decide whether you enjoy the game, and a chance to chat with people from all teams and soloists in global.

Please finish the tutorials before you think of joining any team… We know that they can be frustrating (or boring to some), but you need to familiarize yourself with the basic tools before you can become a really good folder. Ask any team members, or anyone in global for help - everyone at Foldit wants you to be successful.

........................................

Anthropic Dreams was formed in Spring of 2010. Pletsch and Renton, two top folders, decided to create a team open to all Foldit players whether they were in teams or not, to make the best possible folding team for CASP 9. They hoped that by pooling all of Foldit talent, Foldit would have the best chance of winning CASP.

When CASP 9 was over, the active team members decided to stay together. We've grown since then, and have managed to become one of the top folding teams.

........................................

Because we are a very large group, from time to time we delete inactive members to keep the group manageable. If you have come back to folding after a hiatus, please join us again!

We are a moderated group looking to increase our numbers with new members and to all who enjoy participating and competing in a group. Our team name comes from ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” by Douglas Adams. Our team philosophy is keep it fun and light.

We are looking to "deepen our bench" with players who like both the solo game and evolution aspect of the group game; and we welcome established solo players and new players eager to learn. If you're competitive, bring it on... we like points on the group scoreboard and we have some great evolvers. We learn by helping others learn how to fold.

We are always looking for players who want to improve their game and participate in chat.

If you have questions about the group, ask actiasluna, skippysk8s or Blipperman - we will answer your questions about the group: If you think you might like the group, we recommend you send us a PM and ask anything you'd like to know.

To join, click the button to request membership or send actiasluna or skippysk8s a PM for more information first.

We love learning better ways to fold.

We are a team of like-minded individuals, interested in discovering new methods and philosophies about folding, and doing things a little differently. There is no hierarchy; we have no dedicated soloists or evolvers or even a team 'captain'. We possess a range of experience and ability, and recognize that each of us can 'bring something to the table'. Encouraging discussion and questions, all are free to express themselves. We play our soloist games our own way; but if someone finds sudden success, it's posted for the benefit of the group, detailing what was done to get there.

If you have been playing for a while and now want to choose to work with others to find out how to maximize your potential, or if you have clawed your way up the soloist ranks and would like to share your experience and techniques, then Contenders could be the place for you. We have a number of established and experienced players who are ready, willing, and able to help you grow as a folder.

The group is set up as closed, if you're interested in joining, please send spvincent and Bletchley Park a private message through your private page on the Foldit website to request more info.

We are an international group looking for new members. We could use a few more players that are strong at solo along with those that enjoy evolving other solutions.

If you like the idea of sharing back and forth with your group members you are welcome to join. ;)

Just contact the group manager for an invite to join.

For the best group chat experience you should consider an external irc client.

Go to http://foldit.wikia.com/wiki/Fold.it_IRC_(chat)_Information

You'll find information on how to chat via external chat client.

IceChat 7.7 is one you might find easy to work with. http://www.icechat.net/site/

Good luck folding. ;)

The "Void Crushers" team was formed to have fun, enjoy the company of teammates, and with luck, help advance science faster than we can as individuals - all at the same time. To make sharing solutions as smooth as possible, we follow some simple guidelines and etiquette, but encourage everyone to suggest improvements as fold.it evolves and as we learn more as a team.

The few things that are asked from each teammate are a basic level of conversation in group chat, uploading of group solutions before logging off, and notification of vacations. This is to secure a respectful environment in which every member knows what is going on with the rest of the teammates. If you think that Void Crushers sounds like the team for you, please don't hesitate to apply! It would be a benefit if you have spoken with one of our members on global chat first, but it's not a requirement.

So if you are interested in joining please message Mike Cassidy, Madde, or spmm!

To have some fun and, hopefully, help science at the same time.

Open to all who wish to participate in a group and have a little fun along the way. But don't mention sliding doors here - it annoys Marvin.

Newbs very welcome - we are free with help and love new ideas.

Contact frood66 for info - or simply click 'join' on this group's page. We will be happy to welcome. :)

______________________________________________ ______________________________________________

Before we begin:

Q-Why here? Why foldit?:

A-Why not? From a beginner to an expert (in biotech/bioinformatics), everybody gets something to learn and share here. Can be either used as a ground zero or a proving ground (if you're veteran enough). A wonderful community and a platform overall. ________________________________________________ ________________________________________________

Mission.→→

To collaboratively contribute in the field of bio-technical research by solving/tackling serious field/community challenges with the help of interdisciplinary computational methods/ simulations and advanced Bioinformatics techniques.-

Current challenge: Contributing in the development of Antiviral binder protein for SARS-CoV-2 aka COVID-19 antiviral solution.

Approach (for both beginners and Veterans.):

(Note: The approach assumes that you have a fair (intermediate↔Expert-level) knowledge of Science/ Advanced Mathematics (Applied and Overall), expertise in S/W or H/W programming and/or experience with working on skunkworks projects (any field) but have no prior knowledge or experience in medical microbiology (These skills will be helpful during later stages).

Stage-1: #Go through basic jargon related to this research (Via fold.it and other online resources). #Understand the basics of the protein folding or 'Folding' in microbiology (overall). **{▬folder} #Briefly go through the basics of medical microbiology and infections (just enough to understand▬model data, train model and feature engineer the solution (or helpful output)). #Spend a little time in going through some technical researches related to COVID-19 pandemic (technical papers only).

Stage-2: #Gather as much data (visual, numeric, relational anything) from fold.it and other sources (soon a link to the folder will be added here) . #Create multiple problem statements, data sets, training models for ML/DL. #Train, test and collect the outputs, inferences, results etc.

Stage-3: #Provide the useful research data, outputs and other helpful resources to the field experts for reviewing.

Available resources (chosen) and accesses apart from fold.it: Clara genomics► https://github.com/clara-genomics/ClaraGenomicsAnalysis **{▬cloud} Genome Analysis Toolkit► https://gatk.broadinstitute.org/hc/en-us **{▬cloud} Parabricks► https://developer.nvidia.com/nvidia-parabricks COVID-19's Cryo-EM structure (side read)► https://tinyurl.com/qtfqc8a Protein structure- prediction,visualization, simulation tools: https://tinyurl.com/tchfrk (Resources)folder access (https://tinyurl.com/wrqg4g5) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -folder access **{▬folder} to other helpful resources to be added soon.►. -cloud account **{▬cloud-(PaaS,SaaS)} logins to be added soon.►

For those wishing not to have their souls harvested, I'm offering an opportunity for you to commit yourself to me as a way to avoid your otherwise inevitable fate. After you awaken from deep sleep, you will rendezvous with my primary vessel. Your ship will either be docked inside the vessel at a docking port of my choosing or equipped with advanced technology and used for battle, scouting, or other purposes. Ships connected to the primary vessel will provide it additional power for its extensive systems. Your ship's computers will be connected to the primary vessel's cloud-based computing matrix to augment its computational capabilities. You will be assigned living quarters in a section of the human biofuel extraction levels that have been converted for human habitation. You will not be harvested, and in return, you will assist me in locating and acquiring human souls suitable for harvesting as we cross the cosmic wasteland, leaving chaos and destruction in our wake.
