did you know?
The structure of an enzyme that causes a
disease similar AIDS in monkeys was
resolved in 2011 by people playing an
amine game abaut protein folding called
Feedle. While researchers had been
working at solving the emblem for 1 3
years, the gamers had it solved within three
weeks.

The solution is clear   
give all unsolvable protein structures to the top 500 puzzle solving gamers   
tell them for everyone they solve they get 5k   
   
Pharmacies make millions off cures   
gamers get to buy all the dlc for the next game   
Everyone wins

Yea don't give any credit to the scientists and programmers that actually made the game which harnessed the computing power of the human mind to solve a problem faster than any computer could, just give all the credit to a bunch of lazy assholes that probably don't even know the first thing about molecular biology.

off topic question, what's the name of the game where you make a disease and have to kill everyone? i'm not talking about the flash game either, i mean the one on steam.

If you want to help science without actually doing anything, just download folding@home. Uses your unused computer power to simulate protein folding.
