How your computer could find a cure for COVID-19

More than 400,000 people from around the world have combined over the past two weeks in a fight to cure COVID-19 and you can too by installing a program on your computer.

Now operating with more power than the world's fastest supercomputer, the [email protected] network is leading the fight to find a cure for the COVID-19 virus. By simply installing the [email protected] application on your computer and turning over some of your computers processing power, you can help the search for a cure to the Virus.

Essentially, the [email protected] program utilities your computer to run calculations and to produce results. In particular, the Folding&Home project is dedicated to understanding protein folding and the diseases that result from protein misfolding and aggregation.

How to get involved

1. Download and run the [email protected] installer.

2. Select Express Install

3. Click Finish

4. Open [email protected] on your computer

5. Select Fold as Anonymous and click 'Start Folding'

Now simply leave the program running and watch the progress as new work units are processed.
