Developer Preview Release Soon
We'll be pushing out another update to the developer preview soon with an exciting new feature - the Blueprint Tool!
This tool allows you drag-and-drop different building blocks (such as secondary structure and ABEGO loops) onto your sequence, making it very easy to create new designs out of known ideal fragments.
Here is a demonstration of some of the features:
A devprev puzzle will be released soon with this feature enabled, so keep an eye out!(Wed, 10/26/2016 - 19:28 | 8 comments)

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.(Fri, 10/14/2016 - 16:07 | 0 comments)
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.2 comments)
