  • You can try to destroy a killer in the food system by playing a computer game

    The Washington Post - 10/28/2017

    UC Davis, Mars Inc., the University of Washington, Northeastern University and Thermo Fisher Scientific have launched a crowdsourcing project aimed at unlocking ways to neutralize aflatoxin. It’s more fun than you might think. To participate, you simply play a computer game called Foldit. Players tinker with 3-D puzzles that mimic the shapes of proteins — in this case, enzymes that may one day be used to destroy aflatoxin.
