Welcome young scientists!
You are now part of a new approach to solving scientific puzzles. That approach is called crowd-sourcing. You are part of the crowd of people who are using their creativity, insight, intuition, and problem-solving skills to learn to predict the ideal shapes for proteins. Working together we are like a huge supercomputer. Once, Foldit players were able to help scientists solve the structure of M-PMV retroviral protease, a crucial protein in HIV, within three weeks; the same puzzle stumped scientists with traditional approaches for more than a decade.
Remember, you are working in public. The message boards are for serious, respectful, and polite discussion only.
If you enjoy Foldit, you might be able to help scientists find cures to diseases.
Let's go fold some proteins!
