New Release!

Hey everyone,

We've just pushed an update with the following fixes and changes:

General:
* Added option to the options menu: "fixed camera pivot.". If unchecked, the camera will always pivot around the center of the screen, instead of around the last thing manually focused on.

Electron Density:
* Added "radius" slider to electron density panel to view only electron density data within a ball of the given radius.
* Added option to manually enter values for threshold and radius in the electron density pane.

Filters:
* Added Score filter for Buried Unsatisfied Polar Atoms.

As always, a big thanks to our developer preview players for helping to test this release!

Video Update: Stopping the Cytokine Storm

We recently kicked off a new challenge in the fight against coronavirus: design a protein that might help keep a person's immune system under control. In this video, we are joined by Umut Ulge, MD PhD, who explains what can happen to somebody's immune system after they get sick with COVID-19.

See our previous blog post for details about our scientific analysis of Foldit solutions.
