Welcome to the foldit workshop for Macromolecules@MQ 2020.The Foldit program puzzles will help you understand how proteins are folded and how the characteristics of the amino acids determine the folding of the protein.

Your objectives for this session are: 1. Use the tutorials to learn how to use Foldit. 2. Increase your understanding of amino acids and protein folding. 3. Use the Foldit tools to re-create the 3D folding of the enzyme Barnase. 4. Gain an understanding of the challenges that proteins face in becoming correctly folded and achieving their lowest energy state.

Science is incremental improvement of knowledge. We stand taller by standing on the shoulders of those who already contributed. We are all giants.

Our mission is to understand the role of protein structure in the drug discovery and design process. Interacting with the molecular structure of proteins using foldit will help you to conceptualize and visualize how protein structure influences drug interactions.

Now for a Foldit puzzle. We will simulate how a chaperone can help proteins fold. In the puzzle, you’ll be getting the mini-GroEl chaperone discussed in the first paper, along with the protein that it helps to fold (barnase). The chaperone will be mostly fixed in place, so you won’t be able to move it much at all, but you’ll have complete control over the folding protein. One note: the reset puzzle feature will be different in this puzzle, as when you use it, barnase will toggle between native and unfolded states. It will be up to you to determine what level of folding provides the optimal balance between folding and interaction with the chaperone.

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. :-)
