An online game has helped determine the structure of an enzyme that could pave the way for anti-AIDS drugs.

In the journal Nature Structural and Molecular Biology, scientists write that they have been puzzled by the protein’s structure for over a decade.
But it took the online community just a few days to produce the enzyme’s model.
