Folding@home distributed computing

Team guru3d has number 69411

We have our own Folding@Home Team which is currently in the Top 70 Teams in the World. Considering that there are more than 185000 teams in the world, that is quite an achievement! Bravo Guru Folders!

What is Folding@Home?

Folding@Home is a distributed computing project that is managed by Standford University. Their aim is to study protein folding, misfolding (when proteins do not fold correctly), aggregation, and related diseases. This will help scientists understand many well known diseases, such as Alzheimer's, Mad Cow (BSE), CJD, ALS, and Parkinson's disease (Details can be found here). Stanford uses novel computational methods and large scale distributed computing, to simulate timescales thousands to millions of times longer than previously achieved. This has allowed us to simulate folding for the first time, and to now direct Stanford's approach to examine folding related disease.
