paper today that reveals a set of folding constraints in the design of RNA molecules So far so normal Most of the data for the study come from an online game that crowdsources solutions from thousands of nonexpert players—unusual but not unique But the lead authors of the paper are the players themselves Now that is a first And there’s a twist: The journal nearly delayed publication because of "ethical" concerns about authors using only their game names The game is called Eterna and it made a big splash in 2014 with a paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that had 37000 players as co-authors The goal was to see whether nonexpert humans can do better than computer algorithms at designing RNA sequences that fold into particular shapes And indeed the humans won even after the computer algorithms were endowed with insights from the human folders When it comes to the biophysics of RNA folding John Henry still beats the machine That 2014 study was led by card-carrying scientists Adrien Treuille and Rhiju Das biophysicists at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and Stanford University in Palo Alto California respectively The two researchers created the game in 2009 (They both cut their teeth on scientific game design as postdocs in the lab of David Baker at the University of Washington Seattle where the blockbuster game FoldIt was conceived) Since then they have massively scaled up the process and hooked the game to a real-world automated lab that actually tests the folding predictions made by players against the 3D structure of the RNA molecules They call it the Eterna Massive Open Laboratory Eterna may be a game with scores rankings and teams but the puzzles are real scientific problems Human versus machine Today’s paper shows how far the effort has come Among the game’s thousands of RNA design "puzzles" there seem to be a small set that are particularly difficult Among the most challenging structural features to figure out is symmetry where an RNA strand folds into two or more identically shaped loops The Eterna game includes an interface for players to propose hypotheses about how particular RNA structures will or will not fold into particular shapes Those were distilled into a set of "designability" rules The question was: Do only human designers struggle with thorny design problems or do computer simulations tussle too The answer is that the computers struggled just as much as the people Researchers report that three of the best existing computer algorithms running on a supercomputer at Stanford struggled to solve the very same RNA design problems as the humans The result shows that the human "designability" rules do indeed correspond to problems that are hard not just for human brains but also for computers the team reports today in the Journal of Molecular Biology In fact the hardest puzzles that could be solved by experienced Eterna players were unsolvable by the computer even after days of crunching And to help improve the algorithms computer scientists now have a set of benchmarks—the Eterna100—to gauge the design difficulty of RNA structures "This paper is a significant contribution" says Jane Richardson a biophysicist at Duke University in Durham North Carolina "The new design principles seem very understandable now that they’ve been described and attention to them should indeed help automated design" She notes that the game itself has become a useful tool for scientists "One of our lab’s former students is an avid Eterna player who has also gotten insights from it for his own current research projects" Identity crisis But publishing a paper led by game players posed a conundrum: Some of the contributing authors were listed only by their game names rather than real-world names "A generally accepted criterion for authorship is that authors must take responsibility for the integrity of the paper" says the journal’s editor Peter Wright a biophysicist at the Scripps Research Institute in San Diego California "In my view identification of an author only by a screen name which can be changed at an instant is inappropriate since that person could not be contacted if issues of accountability arose" In the end the players who are listed as co-authors simply agreed to have their full names listed "It’s really a bit amusing" says lead author Jeffrey Anderson-Lee a computer systems manager at the University of California Berkeley and an avid Eterna player "I guess it’s stretching [the journal’s] boundaries a bit" What’s next for the citizen scientists Many more papers Das says "Over the last 2 years Eterna has offered players the ability to define their own microprojects and they’ve carried out about 80 so far If the community can distill these insights into concise manuscripts there should be a steady stream of player-written papers coming out"Written by Express News Service | Pune | Published: June 24 2009 4:41 am Related News The Pune Municipal Corporation standing committee on Tuesday gave conditional approval to the civic administration proposal for giving subsidy in premium on construction of smaller houses in order to promote cheap housing in the city The civic administration had proposed 25 per cent subsidy for construction having flats of 50 sq m to 80 sq m and 50 per cent subsidy for scheme with houses of 30 sq m to 50 sq m The civic body had faced criticism after the proposal was rejected earlier in the standing committee The higher property prices had made it difficult for the middle class citizens to have their own houses in the city Howeverthe industry was also hard hit due to economic slow down with no more bookings The revenue collection through building permission had reduced drastically due to slow down The civic administration had said that the proposal would enable increase in revenue for the PMC while also help in promoting low cost housing The political parties expressed concern that the builders would not percolate the benefits to the end-buyer and the plan would not get in favour of citizens To ensure that the public benefit from it and the builders wont make most of itstanding committee chairman Nilesh Nikam said that certain conditions have been put on administration for its effective implementation The builders cannot combine two small flats into one after taking benefit of the scheme also it will be the responsibility of the administration that the benefit goes to the end user and not to the builderhe said For all the latest Pune News
