this page is now the first hit on google for "foldit aflatoxin"

The Scientific American podcast features Justin Siegel from UC Davis. He's leading the research team, and is another product of the Baker Lab. He was a lead author of "Increased Diels-Alderase activity through FoldIt player guided backbone remodeling", Nature Biotechnology 2012: 30: 190-192 DOI: 10.1038/nbt.2109. (That paper also cited "Foldit players", or at least "Players F", as an author, along with Drs. Cooper, Baker, and Popovich.)

the BBC interviews are now offline (insert frowny emoticon here)

Sadly, the BBC in its finite wisdom limits the time you can listen to its World Service broadcasts online. The interview with Dr. Shapiro and Susume are now in the digital dustbin.

I was able to capture Susume's interview using a technically flawed (really horrible) speaker-to-microphone method. I'll put out a transcript in the near future.

student publication at UC Davis

The Aggie is published by the Associated Students at the UC Davis (ASUCD). According to the UC Davis' website, they are ranked #1 nationally in agriculture and #1 worldwide in veterinary medicine. So the aflatoxin challenge seems like a good fit.
