Foldit design crystal structure

We've carried out an x-ray diffraction experiment with one of our protein crystals, and were able to solve the first-ever crystal structure of a protein designed by Foldit players! The final crystal structure is a near-exact match to the designed conformation. More details about the crystal structure will be forthcoming. For now, players check out the blog for information about x-ray diffraction, and explore the electron density map in Puzzle 1384!

Very good news!

Very good news! Now you need to connect the distributed artificial intelligence and do the API !!!

OPEN AI is already working on FOLD IT

Very gratifying news. When

Very gratifying news. When one considers that the contributors come from many different fields, it is also a tribute to collective human ingenuity and resourcefulness, and a validation of the core concept of foldit.
