Folding for us
Lawrence Latif at Thursday 16th April filed under Misc
A long time ago the 3DVelocity Folding@Home team was setup and achieved considerable success, at times being in the top 20 of all teams participating in the project. However in recent years it has become somewhat dormant and we've slipped down the rankings.

Folding@Home is a distributed computing project aiming to find out more about how proteins "fold" and gain a better understanding of how this can lead to diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and many other cancers. Think of it as a useful incarnation of Seti@Home.

If you wish to take part and donate your spare CPU/GPU or PS3 cycles to the cause, you can download a client from here and join team 11987 when prompted in the client. The team statistics are available here. A forum is also up in our community, Chattershop.
