Exciting New Updates
We have exciting news today: the new version of Fold it! introduces a new backbone tool that should radically change the game play. With the new tool, many more protein configurations are possible, including undiscovered optimal configurations. Until now, when playing the game it was easy to make large initial improvements and quickly end up with proteins that are very hard to improve. As a result the best scores converged to very similar solutions.
To see how the new backbone tool works, please watch the video we created.
With the backbone tool this is no longer the case because you can explore larger-scale changes to the proteins, and thus find drastically different proteins. We can also start the puzzles in a more unfolded state, so try Puzzle 12! The new tool should automatically install the next time you play.
We look forward to your solutions!
