What is folding at home?

Folding@home (FAH or F@h) is a distributed computing project for simulating protein dynamics, including the process of protein folding and the movements of proteins implicated in a variety of diseases. It brings together citizen scientists who volunteer to run simulations of protein dynamics on their personal computers. Insights from this data are helping scientists to better understand biology, and providing new opportunities for developing therapeutics.

The Folding@home software runs while you do other things.

While you keep going with your everyday activities, your computer will be working to help find cures for diseases like cancer, ALS, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, Influenza and many others.

Latest COVID-19 update from the team at Folding@home:

"Please be patient if you experience idle time as we face the COVID-19 pandemic together! We are working like mad to start simulations of COVID-19 proteins. The enthusiastic response to our effort has been tremendous and has sometimes emptied our queues. This is a great “problem” to have as there is no end to the valuable science we can do, its just a matter of giving us some time to get more running."
