New Mac Installer!
As a result of some changes on Apple's side, the previous installer for Mac no longer works. We've released a new Mac installer to address this.
If you already had Foldit installed, it may continue functioning properly, but you might see some issues. If you want to be safe, you can reinstall Foldit and copy over your old files.
As a side note - this new installer changes the title back to "Foldit" from "game_dynamic".(Mon, 04/10/2017 - 18:46 | 2 comments)

Science Chat Question Round Up (Developer Edition)
We have a great roundup of questions from our last science chat, touching on a number of developer issues that were cut mostly for time, but also to help keep the last science chat from veering too far into development questions. Since the two are pretty closely linked, we wanted to be extra sure to follow up on those. You can find jflat's answers this way. Thanks to everyone who asked us questions, and we look forward to seeing you (and your new questions) at the next chat.(Mon, 03/13/2017 - 18:18 | 0 comments)
Next Science Chat March 28
Hi everybody! A quick announcement today- our next Science Chat is March 28. Be sure your questions get posted here (this thread, right here) so I can send them to the team in advance of the chat. As long time chat fans are aware, the more questions we have prepared ahead of time the more questions we can likely get in.(Mon, 03/13/2017 - 17:00 | 15 comments)

Foldit design update - Part 2
This is an extension of last week's protein design update, in which we discussed recent improvements in backbone quality and showcased a collection of player designs that were brought into the wet lab. Our analysis is ongoing, and some of those designs may still yield results. But a few exceptional designs are already showing promise, and we thought those results warranted a separate, more focused analysis here. Check it out!(Tue, 03/07/2017 - 15:26 | 0 comments)
