Folding Turkeys

November 27th, 2007 By Scott Savage Categories: Folding
We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here in Australia, however I still found a new article
on the Stanford Folding website quite interesting. It relates to the importance of some turkey proteins in the study of folding. Why are they important? Well according to the
article the protein fluoresces when hit with light of a particular frequency. This fluorescence can then be accurately measured and documented to track the folding process.

I have been folding for some time now and have amassed quite a few WU (Work Units). If you are interested in using a spare core or two of your shiny new computers then please come and join Overclockers Australia, we need all the help we can get!
