I am currently a college student majoring in Biology. My professor introduced me to your page so that I can visually see how a protein is folded. However, I am unable to do the puzzles because there is not a download option for Chromebooks. I believe that this website would be very helpful towards learning more about proteins. Please help those with Chromebooks have the opportunity

to play the games.

Thank you.

There are lots of students who would use this, and teachers who would use it in their science and game design classes, but we cannot access it because we are all on Chromebooks.

Foldit runs on Linux, and you can install Linux on a Chromebook. Maybe this would work.

Disclaimer: I haven't tried it myself.

If worse comes to worse, you can probably still help
fight coronavirus and the fields of protein folding and
design with the programs Rosetta@Home and Folding@Home.
