Help simulate COVID-19 protein folding

morreale Tuesday 24 of March, 2020
Folding@home (FAH or F@h) is a distributed computing project for simulating protein dynamics, including the process of protein folding and the movements of proteins implicated in a variety of diseases. Folding@home is working to start simulations of the COVID-19 protein. The simulations are run on a volunteer network of distributed computers. Volunteers install an app on their computer and the simulation runs when the users computer is idle. To support the effort, download, install the program, and configure it to allocate computer resources as desired. The app is available for Windows, Linux, and macOS.

Linus Tech Tips has a video Here's How YOU Can Help Find a Cure for COVID-19! that shows them setting up a machine to run the Folding@home.
