Let's Help Scientists Develop New Treatments

Do you have a computer at home that sits mostly idle? You can put it to some useful work.

During the COVID pandemic we joined thousands of donors of CPU and GPU computing capacity to help the Folding@Home project. By doing so, our excess computing resources support scientists in simulating and understanding molecular dynamics of proteins. Many of the projects that utilize this distributed computing platform are focusing on COVID-19 and other viruses and proteins in search for therapeutic opportunities.

If you want to connect your computer to this project, you can start by installing the Folding@Home packages on your computer. Then you can follow a few easy configuration steps.

Once you get it up and running and a Work Unit is assigned to your computer, you can visualize the very molecule that is being analyzed...
...and you can also learn more about the project supported by the ongoing simulation. For example:
Before you join the FAH project as a donor of CPU/GPU time, you may want to learn more about protein molecular dynamics simulations. Here are some helpful resources:

You can look up our contribution summary and even join our team # 253733.

A tip: If you worry about security (we really don't in this case) you may consider running Folding@Home inside VirtualBox. You can get it from here.

Pi Day 2021 update: After 1 year of folding, along with our Team members, we are happy to report contributing over 4300 work units to the FAH project.
