What is [email protected]?

Folding
[email protected] is a distributed computing project, that very simply stated, studies protein folding and misfolding.
You can help scientists studying Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, and many cancers by simply running a piece of software on your computer or game console.

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, [email protected] 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.

Moreover, the data is available for others to use. In particular, the results from [email protected] will be made available on several levels. Most importantly, analysis of the simulations will be submitted to scientific journals for publication, and these journal articles will be posted on the [email protected] web page after publication.

The [email protected] software runs behind the scenes using otherwise unused computing time. Mostly likely you will hardly even notice it.
