Folding@home for disease research - use your idle CPU and GPU power to assist COVID-19 simulation

Like SETI@home before it for ET signal research, this system allows home users to use the idle time of our hugely powerful modern CPU and GPUs to process enormous calculations for simulations on many diseases and send the results back to researchers. Together we can crunch more data than supercomputers!

Naturally the focus has shifted to COVID-19. Grab the free app and help make a difference :+1:
