I went to the CASP site and realized I didn't have any way of seeing how the foldit community was doing. What group are the submission under? How are things going?

Just curious.

If we're the DBAKER submission ... or a part of it ... then congrats.

Now the question is how much of that score (out of the 64 submissions) did the Foldit community make significant contributions to?

Hey telesphore4,

The CASP experiment runs every 2 years.

CASP 8 was during the summer of 2008 (right as Foldit started) and yes, we had Foldit submissions under the DBAKER group. They were mostly in the refinement category; you can see the CASP 8 results here:

So the next CASP experiment, CASP 9, will start in May 2010 (mark your calendars!!!) and run until August 2010.

The current mini-CASP puzzles that we are posting are for you (and us) to practice for CASP 9.

Here is more info about mini-CASP:

So how are the foldit scores in comparison to the released protein scores ?
