Research Summary
Nucleic Acids effect on Proteostasis and Foldit
Research Description
The Horowitz lab studies citizen science and scientific computer gaming using the biochemistry game Foldit. Our work with Foldit focuses on integrating experimental data into the game, and developing new educational tools and approaches. These efforts improve the speed and accuracy of structural biology investigations, as well as providing hands-on science teaching tools used world-wide. Additionally, we study how nucleic acids impact protein folding and aggregation using strategies ranging from genetics to biophysics.
