April 22, 2020: Fight COVID-19 With The Folding Trip

Join The Folding Trip, a Folding@Home team organized by Jean/Worldwalker of Wintertree Software, on the TFT Discord server. Look for the # dungeon room under the Main heading to discuss. The Folding Trip team is number 259833. To join by team name, be sure to remove the spaces (i.e., TheFoldingTrip).

Folding@Home uses otherwise-idle CPU and GPU time on your computer(s) to solve protein-folding models via distributed computing: "Folding refers to the way human protein folds in the cells that make up your body. We rely on the proteins to keep us healthy and they assemble themselves by folding. But when they misfold, there can be serious consequences to a person's health." Current work is focused on COVID-19.

Get the software and learn more at Folding@home. You may want to get a "passkey" issued by Folding@Home to more accurately track your contributions, as well as earn more points for the team.
