Citizen scientists can now use Foldit to successfully design synthetic proteins. The initial results of this unique collaboration are described in Nature.

Brian Koepnick, a recent PhD graduate in the Baker lab, led a team that worked on Foldit behind the scenes, introducing new features into the game that they believed would help players home in on better folded structures. Read more from the Baker Lab.

Thanks to all Rosetta@home participants who helped in this study. Many of the designs were validated using forward folding on Rosetta@home.
