New electron density for Foldit-designed protein!

We’ve been able to crystallize another protein design from a Foldit player, and have derived an electron density map at 1.9 Å resolution!!! Check out Puzzle 1475 now, and see if you can fold the protein into the electron density map!

Updates from the Foldit Team - December 2017

Here are some things the Foldit team has been working on lately:

  • rmoretti: Bugfixes and interface improvements for drug design puzzles; updating the underlying Rosetta code to include the most recent improvements.
  • joshmiller: Making the Conditions system more user-friendly and working on putting it in some of the tutorial levels as sort of "side quests" which will earn bonus points.
  • bkoep: Trying to crystallize more proteins in the lab.
  • jflat: Fixing that darn IRC server.

New Devprev Puzzle!

We've posted a new [DEVPREV] RNA puzzle for players to try out Foldit with nucleic acids. Foldit tools that previously caused crashes with RNA have been either fixed or disabled, and we introduced several changes to improve the Shake tool. We'd appreciate if devprev players could try out this puzzle, and let us know if you encounter any issues!
