Flashback with us to eight years ago and to a time when a little protein folding game with a big dream was unleashed upon the world. Since then, Foldit has been the subject of dozens of articles, numerous papers and presentations, won awards, and had our early days chronicled in a book. We have also appeared in a nearly countless number of articles and mentioned in other books!
These days, our community is focused on breaking new ground, with great tools like the Ramachandran map and an experimental client with tools for small molecule drug discovery!
With frequent and regular science chats, a steady stream of videos produced by the community, and new puzzles appearing to challenge players regularly, there’s never been a better time to get involved.
Also, we’ll be at Shoreline STEM festival this weekend if you want to say hi!
