Computer Programmer Needed

The Bardwell laboratory and the Foldit development team are looking to hire a computer programmer to develop the Foldit game. Foldit is a computer game that challenges players to solve real biochemistry problems. The candidate would interface with current Foldit developers and experimental collaborators to improve the ability of Foldit to interface with biochemical data. The ideal candidate would have considerable programming experience in C++ and experience with large-scale code-bases. Past experience or knowledge of biochemistry, molecular biology, or X-ray crystallography is recommended. Work location could be at the primary Foldit development site in Seattle, and/or tertiary sites in Boston or Ann Arbor. Salary will be determined based on education level and experience. Please direct any and all questions or applications consisting of cover letter and resume or CV to the Bardwell lab.

Weekend Storm Advisory (updated)

Small weather advisory here: The PNW is expected to see an increase in heavy storming (including severe winds) on a level that a number of places are comparing it to huge storms that took place in 1962. Greatest impact days are projected to be:
Late Thursday night/Friday morning - 10/13: now not as bad as projected
Late Saturday morning/Saturday night - 10/13: still projected to be terrible

Please note while we do not expect Foldit to be affected, it's one of those things that fall into the realm of possibility, and we will do our absolute best to minimize any downtime that falls within our ability to fix. And of course, if you are within the path of the storms, please stay safe. You can keep updated and get more information here, here, here, and here.

In the event Foldit is affected by the weather, please be sure you are following us on Twitter and Facebook. We will do our very best to keep those updated as we are able.

New Release!

Hey everyone!

We've just released a small update with a change to idealize SS. Your fellow players noticed that the helices produced by the tool weren't optimal, and we're putting in a change to fix that!

Tools:
* Idealize SS now uses more realistic values for idealizing helices

Foldit Plays for Jain Foundation / DYSF

Our new puzzle and corresponding blog post is up. As many of you learned from our news post yesterday, September 30 is Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy Awareness Day, and we are introducing Puzzle 1291: Dysferlin C2B Domain to commemorate this day and to spread awareness to the Foldit community.
