Lab Report #25: Education Mode

Foldit Education Mode spells out the science of proteins. Built for students, teachers, and you!

- Education Mode now available from the Foldit puzzle menu

- Protein binder design for TGF-beta, IL-2 receptor, CD47
- Symmetric design puzzles

- A binder design for the CD47 target, created by nspc in Puzzle 2043, makes excellent hydrophobic contacts with the CD47 target and does a good job of satisfying buried polar atoms with H-bonds. Take a look for yourself in the October Design of the Month sandbox puzzle.

Developer Preview Release Soon

Hey everyone,

We're about to push an update to the developer preview with some fixes and changes:

* The Deepmind Alphafold panel has been redesigned!
* You can now select the residues that fall within the visible sphere from the electron density panel.

Additionally, we have changed some things under the hood that shouldn't have an effect on the player experience, but let us know if you see anything odd.
