Foldit Joins the International Protein Folding Competition
Foldit is joining the Team Baker Lab to compete in CASP, the international protein folding competition. This contest is usually won by complex computer programs running on large computer clusters. Let's show them that computers are no match for the collective human creativity of over 20,000 Foldit players!
In preparation, we posted some CASP warmup puzzles (Fibronectin, E. coli, Human Fyn 2, Transduction). CASP will be the first time you are folding proteins for which we truly do not know the folded shape. Be prepared; they're difficult.(Thu, 05/15/2008 - 07:04 | 0 comments)
