Exciting New Updates

We have exciting news today: the new version of Fold it! introduces a new backbone tool that should radically change the game play.  With the new tool, many more protein configurations are possible, including undiscovered optimal configurations.  Until now, when playing the game it was easy to make large initial improvements and quickly end up with proteins that are very hard to improve.  As a result the best scores converged to very similar solutions.

Small landmark reached

  Puzzles 8 and 9 are the first two puzzles where non-biochemists found better proteins than all biochemists in our game player pool (and there's a lot of them).  Congratulations to ferzle, and mummiebrain.
