    Video gamers help crack AIDS enzyme

    A decade-old biomolecular puzzle has been recently solved by online gamers!

    Here's one article about that tricky enzyme and how video gamers helped cracking it:

    I wonder how many things can be achieved while people are having fun, and probably do not know/care about the actually effect the games they are playing have in the world.

    To the astonishment of the scientists, the gamers produced an accurate model of the enzyme in just three weeks.
