Summary

Distributed computing project to understand protein folding

Description

Help Stanford University scientists studying Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, Parkinson’s, and many cancers by simply running a piece of software on your computer. The program does this by building simulations of how proteins, RNA, and nanoscale synthetic polymers fold.

This program does not slow your computer down and only uses unused computer power.
