Donate your unused CPU cycles

Donate the unused CPU cycles on your computer(s) to help scientists determine the 3-dimensional shapes of proteins in research that may ultimately lead to finding cures for some major human diseases. By running the Rosetta program on your computer while you don’t need it you will help speed up and extend research in ways scientists couldn’t possibly attempt without your help. You will also be helping efforts at designing new proteins to fight diseases such as HIV, malaria, cancer, and Alzheimer’s. (See Disease Related Research for more information).

Considering the poor preparation by world governments for a lethal bioweapon attack, nongovernmental approaches like this may save millions of lives! As our Ray Kurzweil says, “There are tens of thousands who have the knowledge and tools today to create and release a destructive biological virus.” (Read Biowar for Dummies!)
