To speed up the development of drugs to combat coronavirus, researchers at the University of Washington are calling citizen scientists to play a free online game called Foldit. Citizen scientist can help designing and identifying proteins that may be able to bind to and neutralize the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein that it uses to invade host cells.

The Foldit website has crowdsourced contributions to important protein research from more than 200,000 registered players worldwide in the last 12 years.
