Join the author list on an upcoming research paper

Researchers at the Baker Lab have recently used Foldit players' work to help develop a new method for designing proteins. They are preparing a research paper to share the results, and contributing Foldit players can opt to be included as authors of the paper.

If you played any "Monomer Design" puzzles between 2009 and 2019, and you would like to be included among the authors of the paper, please fill out this Google form.

email confirmation

To prevent fraud I would expect a confirmation e-mail to be sent to our registered e-mail addresses upon completing the opt-in form. Is this planned ? I would like to see the choices linked to the nickname I entered.

email today from "Foldit Publications"

I received an external email today from "Foldit Publications" (foldit.publications@gmail.com).

It's not a confirmation, just another invitation to fill out the same Google form.

Yes

We sent the Foldit Publications email to eligible Foldit players that might have missed the News post.

The confirmation email will come once the paper draft is available to review -- probably in the next week or two.

Figs S7C and S11B

After skimming the above article, I like the
diversity of Foldit player designs shown in Fig. S7C
and the rather American color scheme in Fig. S11B.

Fig S7C
I am curious what players' designs are shown
in Fig. S7C. If it isn't too late, could you add 
the #'s 1-35 to each one and then in the caption 
have a list of player names for each design #?
If 1-35 doesn't work well, maybe # the rows from
1-5 and the columns from 1-7 and then list them 
in the captions like 1-1 to 1-7 for the top row 
from left to right and 5-1 to 5-7 for the bottom 
row from left to right.

Similar things could be done for other figures
showing player designs, like Figs. 2 and S4A.

Supplement

We might not be able to add that info to the figure captions (these should be as concise as possible). But all of this will eventually be available in the supplementary data for the paper!

Are Figs S4A and S7C part of the Supplementary Data?

Are Figs S4A and S7C part of the Supplementary Data?
Are you allowed to have longer captions in the
Supplementary Data section?
