To provide a group for those who like to smoke weed, listen to tunes, and fold those proteins.

Membership is open to all.

Rules,Guidelines...

1) Help each other with the puzzles, discuss, share them, etc. 2) No fighting, unless it's over a puzzle. 3) Be respectful of people actively discussing a problem. 4) Sharing music, websites, interesting stuff is highly encouraged. 5) The development of scripts/recipes is also highly encouraged. 6) Have fun.

This will be updated once there's more than one person here. :-)

You will be completing the introduction puzzles through the fold.it game. To complete the assignment you must complete 32 puzzles.

If you have any questions for your fellow students or the instructor, please post them here. Please make sure to stay on topic with your questions. They need to be relevant to the game and/or protein structure and function.

Have fun!

Welcome to the SFSU Cell Biology Foldit Group. Please read the about page (https://fold.it/portal/info/about) to better understand the importance of protein folding in cell biology. Then, download the appropriate version of the app from the home page, log in, and begin the intro puzzles.

The goal of playing these training levels is to get a feel for the intramolecular forces that compel proteins to take on their unique shapes. Everyone should complete at a minimum: Side Chains, Backbone Packing, Hydrogen Bonding, Hydrophobics and Hydrophilics, Tools and Types, and Protein Design.

Most of the puzzles are straightforward, but a few are a little tricky and you can get stuck (I got stuck several times). Don't spend ages in frustration. Use the group forum to ask classmates for help or use the global chat box on the bottom right of each puzzle to ask other current users.

Above all, have fun!

Jonathan

See if the common non-biochemically inclined individual can score as well as the scientists.

To fold proteins as they have never been folded before. Join our noble cause.
