Love all the work that you guys are doing! Adding a feature that would allow users to try docking small molecules/peptides/proteins would be great! The space filling approach would be a great way to look for new leads! Thanks!

This is in development!

We launched our first small-molecule puzzles in Foldit a couple years ago. The initial results were promising, but the software features needed a bit more work to make these puzzles more scientifically productive. I think those puzzles will return very soon!
