Abstract A denatured protein chain can find its well-ordered three-dimensional structure, the native state, in under a second, using only the information contained in the sequence. For researchers, however, the prediction of structures from sequences is a hard problem, so they are now recruiting all the help they can get, including idle computers and game consoles, game players, and little hints from evolution.
