The rundown on coronavirus

You don't have to be a scientist to do science! Download and play Foldit and you can help researchers discover new antiviral drugs that might stop coronavirus! The most promising solutions will be manufactured and tested at the University of Washington Institute for Protein Design in Seattle.

Foldit is run by academic research scientists. It is free to play and not-for-profit. To get started, download Foldit and create a username!

We recommend that new players start with the Foldit Intro Puzzles.
After some practice, move on to the Science Puzzles and try out the Beginner: Coronavirus puzzle.
We also have an advanced puzzle NEW advanced puzzle where you can try to design an antiviral protein from scratch!

To meet other players, check out the Foldit Discord channels.

Note: Foldit is an interactive computer game and not a distributed computing project. If you would like to donate idle CPU cycles to science, please check out the Rosetta@Home project on BOINC.

A Reminder of the Community Rules

Hello all! Hope you are enjoying this fine Tuesday. I wanted to take a brief moment to remind everyone about the Foldit Community Rules. As part of the community, everyone is expected to adhere to these rules at all times, so it is important all are aware of what is expected. Here are the highlights:

  • Keep the conversation PG-rated, since there is a wide range of ages in the community. Anything deemed offensive or obscene will not be tolerated.

New Release!

Hey everyone!

We've just pushed out an update with some big changes to our underlying biochemistry software, Rosetta.

Rosetta provides Foldit with algorithms that represent the state-of-the-art of protein biochemistry modeling. However, the version of Rosetta you are using is now quite a few years out of date, and we'd like to get back to the cutting edge.
