Help us help scientists studying Alzheimer’s Huntingston’s, and many cancers by using your computer to fold proteins.

What is protein folding?

Before proteins can carry out these important functions, they assemble themselves, or "fold." While protein folding is critical and fundamental to virtually all of biology much of the process remains a mystery. (Source)

For more information on protein folding please check out:

“Gosh Greenie, how do I get started??”
Glad you asked…

How to get started: (instructions compliments of for V7 fahcontrol which is recommended for CPU, SMP and GPU)

First you’ll need to obtain a passkey from

Select a Preferred Mode, GPU & SMP, SMP only, GPU only, or Uniprocessor.

Explanation of modes:

GPU: Single or multiple discrete cards
SMP: Multicore (2+) CPU
GPU & SMP: Creates two folding slots, one for your CPU and one for your GPU
Uniprocessor: Single core CPU

Click Install.

You can now find the FAHcontrol under Start->Programs->FAHClient->FAHControl

Simply click the shortcut and it will start folding immediately.
