Folding@Home 2.0 - An Online Protein Folding Game

"In collaboration with others, Baker has designed a game, called "Foldit," with a practical outcome: players manipulate on-screen images of protein chains and attempt to predict their folding patterns. From the article: "'Our main goal was to make sure that anyone could do it, even if they didn't know what biochemistry or protein folding was,' says [co-creator Zoran] Popovic. At the moment, the game only uses proteins whose three-dimensional structures have been solved by researchers. But, says Popovic, 'soon we'll be introducing puzzles for which we don't know the solution.'"

This is based off of the Folding@Home program, just an interactive version(Go easy on me, this is my first submitted "news!") (Culture, Folding@Home, PS3)
