Fold.it – Genomics, Proteomics, and DIY DNA

Fold.it shows us how to crowdsource science. This game allows users to contribute to biochemistry research by folding model proteins themselves, achieving scores based on their ability to mimic the natural folding process.

Genomics, Proteomics, and DIY DNA

The “Getting to Know You: Genomics Proteomics and DIY DNA” panel took place as part of the Health 2.0 San Francisco 2011 Fall conference and highlighted DNA Guide, 23andme, OpenPCR, and DNA Direct by Medco as some of the most exciting products that can help us understands what’s going on in our genome.
