Foldit Lab Report #6: Coronavirus puzzle

Check out Foldit Lab Report #6 on YouTube now!

We've got a bunch of new puzzles this month — and some exciting tools coming soon!

• Looking at electron density in Foldit is about to get a whooole lot easier (0:31)
• With the new BUNS tool, your solutions should be better behaved in the lab (2:18)

• More poly-proline helix design (3:50)
• CRISPR/Cas transposase (4:02)
• Aflatoxin prediction (4:28)
• Coronavirus spike-binder design (5:20)
• Return of sketchbooks — this time symmetric (6:10)

New AlphaFold blog post!

Check out the blog for a look at AlphaFold, a new method for protein structure prediction!

AlphaFold, which was developed by DeepMind in 2018, uses a sophisticated machine-learning algorithm to derive structural information from a protein's sequence. In the last CASP competition, it out-performed every other method for protein structure prediction! In this latest blog post, we take a look at the AlphaFold method and its impact on protein research!
