Game information Edit

Foldit is a 2008 online puzzle game about protein folding. Founded by professor David Baker at the University of Washington, it is part of an experimental research project developed by the university's Center for Game Science in collaboration with the UW Department of Biochemistry. The objective is to fold the structures of selected proteins as well as possible using tools provided in the game. Using the site's leaderboard, the highest-scoring solutions are analysed by researchers, who determine if there is a native structural configuration (native state) that can be applied to relevant proteins in real life.
