Foldit joins the Baker Lab's "War on Ebola"
The Baker Lab is doubling down on its efforts to design a protein that could bind, and eventually treat, the deadly Ebola virus. In the coming months, the lab has plans to design and test thousands of small proteins using recently-developed biochemical techniques. Foldit could play a huge part in this effort, as we have the opportunity to test a large number of Foldit player solutions from Ebola-related design puzzles.
