Congratulations to koen and sean.kiely!
We have posted 2 new competition puzzles, one of which is the complete pig prion protein. The Bio 200 puzzle we posted last week was a smaller version of the prion protein, now you can compete on the whole thing!(Tue, 03/18/2008 - 02:05 | 0 comments)

Congratulations to Mummiebrain and Feet1st!
Congratulations to out top players on last week's puzzles 22 (mummiebrain, feet1st, hugothehermit, spvincent, and labraticmp3) and 23 (feet1st, spvincent, zzaltz, hugothehermit, and labraticmp3). Of our three new puzzles for this week, two are a new kind of puzzle in which you can see the optimal solution. The challenge is to use the tools to match this solution. We're hoping these puzzles will serve as a test of our tools, as well as help users understand what kind of structures really occur in real proteins. There will be considerable competition in these new puzzles as we have added a large set of computer science grad students to the pool of players. May the best folder win!(Fri, 02/29/2008 - 22:40 | 0 comments)

New Visualization and Levels
We posted a software update today with a host of exciting new features.
- First, we have included a new sketch rendering style which should make the protein easier to see and more fun to look at. Expect even bigger rendering changes soon!
- Second, we have included a set of levels that should be easier to play than our typical folding competions. You will automatically get these updates the next time you start the program.
Please send us feedback on these developments on the message boards.(Wed, 02/06/2008 - 03:13 | 0 comments)
