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 puzzle series: Poly-proline helix

We're introducing a new series of Foldit puzzles, based on a special type of protein structure called a poly-proline helix. We're challenging Foldit players to design new proteins that incorporate this special helix!

New Update

Hey all,

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

* Added a function GetSymCount - Return the number of symmetry copies. 0 if there are no copies.
* The AddBetweenSegments function has changed to account for symmetric bands:
- (integer segmentIndex1, integer segmentIndex2, [integer atomIndex1], [integer atomIndex2], [integer symnr2])
