After a brief break from efforts late last year, Foldit players have started to revisit Ebola and the Marburg virus with new series of puzzles. As always, our Foldit team remains committed to research in this area and appreciates everyone’s assistance on these puzzles. Feedback has been steady in this area from our scientists, and we are looking forward to chatting more about these puzzles at our upcoming science chat on the 21st of June.
- Our roundup of links detailing previous work in this area, with educational links
- Feedback from Puzzle 1073
- Feedback on the latest Marburg puzzle 1108
If you haven’t tried Foldit yet, this would be an excellent time to do so and assist with our latest Marburg design puzzle. This time, we have asked contributors to design something even smaller than the previous puzzle, by taking a shot at a 25-residue inhibitory peptide.
