Developer Preview Release Soon
We're about to release an update to the Developer Preview soon. This update contains some back-end changes to the software, and you shouldn't notice much of a difference in how things run. If you notice something new that we forgot, let us know!(Wed, 08/31/2016 - 00:41 | 4 comments)
Foldit Annual Surveys
It's the best time of the year - it's survey time! The first survey we're launching will run to September 7, and addresses thoughts about puzzles. Strangely enough, these surveys look almost like the ones we ran last year, but that helps us look at the trends over time. All replies are anonymous, so feel free to share your thoughts with us.
We take the results of our puzzle survey into high consideration when planning our schedules, so the more input we get, the more informed decisions we can make.
Thanks!(Fri, 08/26/2016 - 22:36 | 4 comments)
TB Puzzle Update
Here's an update from our developer free_radical, in case the attribution on the news isn't showing up for you.
I wanted to give a brief update on the TB puzzle. First, everyone did a great job and you have really impressed all of the scientists involved with the project. It is amazing for me to be part of a community that cares so much and is willing to work on projects that can help those in need.
As a heads up, I will begin to analyze the models created by everyone this week and next. For phase 3, we will use Foldit models, template models, and homology models as starting structures. We will also bring in the alignment tool to help out. As a quick reminder, there are no crystal structures and no crystals have formed from the protein that we have expressed. However, your models help guide us in experiments to help with the crystallization process.(Mon, 08/15/2016 - 18:00 | 1 comment)
