Description: Protein folding at it's best!

Dear 4j

This is your chance to become an expert on protein folding! Wow, exciting!
Not convinced yet?

So let's get some information on what foldit actually is and what it's good for!

Wikipedia's introductory paragraph says:
«The objective of the game is to fold the structure of selected proteins as well as possible, using various tools provided within the game. The highest scoring solutions are analysed by researchers, who determine whether or not there is a native structural configuration (or native state) that can be applied to the relevant proteins, in the "real world".
Scientists can then use such solutions to solve "real-world" problems, by targeting and eradicating diseases, and creating biological innovations. A 2010 paper in science journal Nature credited Foldit's 57,000 players with providing useful results that matched or outperformed algorithmically computed solutions.»

As you see, by playing this game you can become part of the 'scientific community'!

Let's get started!

Have fun and learn!

Best wishes,

M. Lichtsteiner
