Gamers PWN AIDS-Related Molecular Mystery

A team of players of an online game called "Foldit" took three weeks to solve a problem in AIDS research that has puzzled scientists for years.

The team of "Foldit" players created a model of the protease that was good enough to let researchers determine its structure.
