Journal post from David Baker.

In response to requests from many of you, we will be posting descriptions of the many scientific problems currently being tackled with Rosetta@Home on the Science message boards in the next couple of weeks--stay tuned! I also want to describe a new research direction we are now embarking on aimed at future cancer therapies. There are a small set of proteins which are frequently found at much higher levels than normal on the surface of cancer cells. We are starting to design small proteins which bind tightly to these tumor cell markers. If we are successful, we have collaborators who will be testing these proteins for their ability to target cancer cell killing agents to the tumors.
