What is the EteRNA game?
Adrien Treuille, assistant professor of computer science at Carnegie Mellon University, discusses the online game EteRNA that has been developed jointly by CMU and Stanford University. EteRNA will engage a large and diverse group of players in the scientific discovery of principles underlying RNA design.
What have we learned from EteRNA?
CMU's Adrien Treuille talks about what researchers already have learned about RNA design during the beta testing of the new online game EteRNA. He also explains how the larger scientific community can use EteRNA as a tool and a resource.
