Foldit: when gaming contribute to curing diseases!

Foldit: when gaming contribute to curing diseases! | Social media & scientific research | Scoop.it

Foldit is a revolutionary new computer game enabling anyone to contribute to important scientific research.

Principle: knowing the structure of a protein is key to understanding how it works and to targeting it with drugs. A small protein can consist of 100 amino acids, while some human proteins can be huge (1000 amino acids). The number of different ways even a small protein can fold is astronomical because there are so many degrees of freedom. Figuring out which of the many, many possible structures is the best one is regarded as one of the hardest problems in biology today and current methods take a lot of money and time, even for computers. Foldit attempts to predict the structure of a protein by taking advantage of humans' puzzle-solving intuitions and having people play competitively to fold the best proteins.
