Paper Authorship: Calling all protein designers!
We are preparing a research paper about protein design in Foldit, and we want to include you! Over the past 6 years, Foldit players have designed a number of impressive proteins from scratch, and in the process have revealed some important discoveries about protein design. We are writing up these results in a formal paper to share with the rest of the scientific community.
None of this would have been possible without Foldit players, and we want to make sure everyone is represented fairly! Any Foldit player who has participated in a protein design puzzle can choose to be included among the authors of the paper. If you have played a protein design puzzle in the last 6 years, please fill out this form to tell us how you would like to be included:
The form includes some optional questions about gameplay strategy and basic demographic information. This has been requested by other researchers, who want to know more about the perspective of Foldit players. Please consider answering these questions to tell us more about your experience playing Foldit.
Edit: Next week we will send a confirmation email to all users who fill out the form. The confirmation email will include a draft of the paper for you to review.(Tue, 12/11/2018 - 23:47 | 12 comments)
