The University of Washington has developed a free game that allows you to create drugs against the new coronavirus. The game is called Foldit and can be downloaded (166 MB) from the official website of FreeThink.

  To start, you need to register and go through several lessons. Then you need to create a chain of protein from scratch. The most promising options are then tested on IPD and if the correct combination is found, it will be subjected to further tests.

  The general idea of ​​the game is to find the right combination of proteins that can effectively protect cells from coronavirus attacks. Then scientists plan to use them to develop drugs.

  However, it will take a lot of time because a modest protein of 100 amino acids has 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 possible combinations.
