What is Folding@home?
Distributed Computing is a method of computer processing in which different parts of a program, or different portions of data, are processing simultaneously on two or more computers that are communicating with each other over a network or through the Internet.
Unlike other distributed computing projects, Folding@home is run by an academic institution (specifically the Pande Group, at Stanford University’s – Chemistry Department), which is a nonprofit institution dedicated to science research and education.
The Folding@home software runs behind the scenes using otherwise unused computing time. Mostly likely you will hardly even notice it.
Folding@home can run on computers and game consoles (Playstation, Xbox…).
Folding@home can be downloaded from the Folding Homepage.
