Folding-at-home is a distributed computing project for simulating protein dynamics simulating the movements (ie. folding) of proteins implicated in a variety of diseases. The project allows everyday computer users to donate their spare computing power to help disease researchers understand more about cancer, ALS, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, Influenza, Covid-19 and more.
By installing the Folding-at-home client on your computer, your computer's CPU and GPU will run complex simulations, all whilst you browse the web, watch videos or do work. The data your computer's simulations generate, along with those of hundreds-of-thousands of others, combine to build powerful datasets which would take researchers years, or millions of dollars to emulate on dedicated servers.Get Folding-at-Home
Help fight COVID-19!
Folding-at-home is running dedicated simulations to back worldwide efforts to assist in identifying ways to treat and stop Covid-19. Research teams are running simulations not only to better understand the how the proteins of SARS-CoV-2 operate, but simulating the effects of existing treatments and drugs to speed up the discovery of life-saving therapies for Covid-19.Folding for Covid-19
Join the DevNQ Folding Team
DevNQ maintains a Folding-at-home team to not only count DevNQ's member contributions towards the project, but to encourage more members to contribute through friendly, healthy competition. Whether you just want to make a small contribution of CPU time, or whether you want to dominate the leaderboard start contributing your folding towards team DevNQ!Learn how to contribute to a team
