LIVE VIDEO STREAM SCHEDULE

Coming Soon!!!

ABOUT FIB
This netcast explores the rapidly changing world of biotech, with a penchant towards getting a better understanding of who we are and where we are going. The living world will soon be a true substrate for engineering. Our world will change, and so will we. 
We bring a first hand account from the scientists that are moving us into this new technological era: the era of biotech.

    Futures in Biotech 41: Modeling Life with the World's Fastest Computer 

    Dr. Pande explains how large gains in computational speed have been achieved with folding@home, and how they are applied to understanding disease.

    Hosts: Marc Pelletier and Randal Schwartz

    Guest: Dr. Vijay S. Pande, Director of Folding@Home and Associate Professor of Chemistry and of Structural Biology, Stanford University

    Dr. Pande's work is at the forefront of both distributed computing and molecular simulation experiments: an extremely valuable combination when trying to model the movement of millions of atoms at a time. Predicting the fundamental processes of life to better understand diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, or even cancer is not easy, but with the true ingenuity Dr. Pande and his team at Stanford, great strides have been made.

    I was listening to this episode today, and noticed that there was a bit about 45 minutes in when someone mentioned that it would be cool to have a Wii game that allowed you to 'manuallly' fold proteins. Have you seen foldIt? Their site is here:
    http://fold.it/portal/
    It is basically just what you described, a fairly realistic protein folding computer puzzle game. It would be cool if someone made it into a Wii game, maybe using the new Wii controller that gives full six axis control, but even now on our desktop you can get most of what you seemed to want in the netcast.
