Learning about Protein Folding with FoldIt

Jeremy Mills, Ph.D. will be returning to HiveBio Community Lab to teach the second round of Introduction to Proteins with FoldIt. This class is designed to introduce beginners to the intricate world of proteins, and discuss their molecular structures and functions. Learning about proteins is fun and easy using FoldIt, a video game where the object is to orient the parts of the protein in an energetically favorable way, displayed visually using shapes and colors.
