Foldit Foldit is an online puzzle video game about protein folding. The game is part of an experimental research project, and is developed by the University of Washington's Center for Game Science in collaboration with the UW Department of Biochemistry. The objective of the game is to fold the structure of selected proteins as well as possible, using various tools provided within the game. The highest scoring solutions are analysed by researchers, who determine whether or not there is a native structural configuration (or native state) that can be applied to the relevant proteins, in the "real world". Scientists can then use such solutions to solve "real-world" problems, by targeting and eradicating diseases, and creating biological innovations. History[edit]

The Dos And Don’ts Of Facebook Crowdsourcing Your brand’s Facebook page can be a great resource to garner ideas, creativity, and feedback from your fans — if it’s done correctly. Crowdsourcing encompasses the idea of outsourcing tasks to the community through an open call — in most cases, it describes a call for creative input to collaboratively reach a goal, and usually this happens via social media. This tactic can cut through the noise and build meaningful connections with your consumers or community. So how do businesses apply crowdsourcing to their Facebook strategy? What are the best practices of creating Facebook contests, polls, and surveys to engage fans? Here are some dos and don’ts.

Objective - WeSenseIt The citizen water observatory is tested and validated in three case studies in water management, which have been proposed by civil protection agencies in the UK, the Netherlands and Italy. The case studies cover the entire hydrologic cycle with a major focus on variables responsible for floods and drought occurrences. Floods and droughts carry enormous economic and social costs and their frequency and impact is likely to increase in the future, due to climate change and to the increasing number of communities and industries located in flood and drought-prone areas. In addition, changes in water quality can also have important impacts (both positive and negative) upon the natural environment, society and the economy. Where relevant, the case studies will also therefore address water quality issues. Download our leaflet.
