Re: Computer upgrade
They don't create supercomputers.
Folding@Home (F@H) is a distributed computing project designed to perform computationally intensive simulations of protein folding and other molecular dynamics. It was launched on October 1, 2000, and is currently managed by the Pande Group, within Stanford University's chemistry department, under the supervision of Professor Vijay Pande. Folding@Home is the most powerful distributed computing cluster in the world, according to Guinness, and one of the world's largest distributed computing projects. The goal of the project is "to understand protein folding, misfolding, and related diseases."
They help us understand how protein are and be able to find cure for the major diseases. More information, you can find by using Google.
If you don't or can't leave your computer on most of the time like while sleeping/work then forget about folding.
