Foldit - Solve Puzzles for Science
Title: Foldit - Solve Puzzles for Science
Title abbreviated: Foldit
Creator: Cooper, Seth; et al.
Abstract: "Here we describe Foldit, a multiplayer online game that engages non-scientists in solving hard prediction problems. Foldit players interact with protein structures using direct manipulation tools and user-friendly versions of algorithms from the Rosetta structure prediction methodologyiv, while they compete and collaborate to optimize the computed energy."
