Scientists can now include online gaming in their problem-resolving arsenical. Because game players seem to have produce an answer to a scientific question that’s vexed researchers for a decade. Scientists wanted to know the instruction of a protein-cutting energy produced by a retrovirus similar to HIV. They haven’t been able to solve the protein structure using standard computer methods. Now, the game -- researchers developed Foldit in 2008. Teams of players’ fold molecules and rotate amino acids to create 3-D protein structures. Gamers get potting for structure stability.
