New Update! (REQUIRED)
We've just posted an update to the game that improves our biochemistry software under-the-hood.
This update is a major change to the way the game scores your proteins, so you will need to update your software in order to see or play any new puzzles.
There's a great blog post about some of the specifics of the update here.
A huge thanks to the players who helped to test this update in the 'experimental' build!(Tue, 03/13/2018 - 18:20 | 0 comments)
Foldit update and puzzle expiration
Next Tuesday, March 13 at
10am PST 11am PDT (18:00 GMT), all active puzzles will expire and we will release a new update for Foldit clients.
This update includes some fundamental improvements to the Foldit score function, which means that all puzzles will score a little differently, and scores from before the update will no longer be valid. For this reason, all active puzzles will expire simultaneously when the update is released, with a brand new set of puzzles to take their place; only updated clients will be able to load the new puzzles. There are some details about the update on the blog here.
A big thanks to all the Foldit players who helped us test this update over the past few weeks in the experimental update group!(Thu, 03/08/2018 - 21:57 | 2 comments)
Winter 2018 Science Chat!
We're excited to announce that the Winter Science Chat will be next taking place on March 8th at 8:00pm GMT (12:00pm, Pacific Time Zone). If you have questions for our developers/scientists it would be helpful to post them right here so the team can review them in advance. We will be having Justin Siegel joining us, so feel free to ask questions about aflatoxin. If we aren’t able to answer all your questions in the given time, we will attempt to get a blog post up soon with answers. Despite the fact that this chat will take place in #veteran, it will be accessible to all who want to join via the following link: http://chat.mibbit.com/?channel=%23veteran&server=irc.fold.it. Looking forward to chatting with you all!
