Currently the goal is to focus on learning the game and eventually upload our metagenomic proteins to analyze them. Once next week (the week of Thanksgiving break) starts, we will choose a mission.

This name is based on our lord and savior Dr. Andrew Murray's friend, the budding yeast. This is our religion at this point, and we may be physically attracted to S. Cerevisae at this point.

This is an open activity for LCHS students to be engaged in the problem solving practices of science... and, of course, because we know how important proteins are!

Welcome, students! We are here to learn how some real science gets done and maybe even make some contributions ourselves if we get good at this protein folding thing!

Dear 4i

This is your chance to become an expert on protein folding! Wow, exciting! Not convinced yet?

So let's get some information on what foldit actually is and what it's good for!

Wikipedia's introductory paragraph says: «The objective of the game is to fold the structure of selected proteins as well as possible, using various tools provided within the game. The highest scoring solutions are analysed by researchers, who determine whether or not there is a native structural configuration (or native state) that can be applied to the relevant proteins, in the "real world". Scientists can then use such solutions to solve "real-world" problems, by targeting and eradicating diseases, and creating biological innovations. A 2010 paper in science journal Nature credited Foldit's 57,000 players with providing useful results that matched or outperformed algorithmically computed solutions.»

As you see, by playing this game you can become part of the 'scientific community'!

Let's get started!

Have fun and learn!

Best wishes,

M. Lichtsteiner
