The Rosetta project points us to The Scientist article about Rosetta’s Foldit
David Baker of the Baker Lab tells us “Today’s issue of Nature Structural Biology reports the determination of the structure of a protein by FoldIt players. This is exciting because it is perhaps the first example of a long standing scientific problem solved by non-scientists. You might read about this in your newspaper; here is a report that does a good job in explaining how FoldIt came out of Rosetta@home…”
“Public Solves Protein Structure
Players of an online game that allows users to adjust how proteins are folded have solved a decade-long protein structure mystery.”

Rosetta@home runs on BOINC software from UC Berkeley
