FoldIt is an awesome game, and I also feel like it would be a great research tool. I would love it if I could custom insert my own sequences along with secondary structure predictions and alignments and then use these skills to try to create homology models for unsolved proteins. If you could open up the source code, I think that would be really valuable.

Your questions look very familiar, but I haven't been able to find the originals. You should look through old Feedbacks for similar ones. I know people have asked about Open Source before. You should also look at the Contests. Perhaps one of the other players or even a member of the Foldit team (look for the ribbon next to their user name) will respond with more information.
