“Computer Game Could Help Cure Diseases”

UW CSE’s Zoran Popovic talks with NPR’s David Green about Foldit.  As we have reported previously, Foldit is a game in which players compete at protein folding (as improbable as that sounds!).   The results give researchers new approaches as they seek to cure diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

The interview (4:33 audio with transcript) is here.
