World health may benefit from a computer game
University of Washington Researchers are trying to make medical discoveries, even finding a cure for HIV by a new game called Foldit. The game may be the key for biological mysteries ranging from vaccine to Alzheimer. The free program is available at http://fold.it/.
Foldit is the first protein-folding project which capitalises
on people’s natural 3-D problem-solving skills. Researchers are trying to use the brain power of people all around the world to advance biomedical research and asking volunteers to participate in this study.
