FINDING THE COVID-19 VACCINE BY PLAYING A GAME

At the University of Washington scientists developed the puzzle game “Foldit” which can help find a vaccine for COVID-19


By solving puzzles using and altering virtual amino acids, the game previously helped fighting against HIV or Alzheimer.

Now, players can test their skills on COVID-19 as well. Foldit can be downloaded for free by anyone. The most promising solutions players come up with will be manufactured and tested at the University of Washington Institute for Protein Design in Seattle and could therefore be used for fighting the ongoing pandemic.
