For those also interested in what the difference is between [email protected] and [email protected], sorry if this thread is old.

[email protected] tries to find the way how to simulate how a protein folds and ways that it can misfold into things like Alzheimer's.
[email protected] tries to find, based on the completed model of A protein (Which is thanks to [email protected] and similar projects), to try to figure out, based on the amount of energy a protein will accept to fold, how many different ways the protein can fold.
While doing this, [email protected] also is using the data to help improve [email protected]'s algorithms for use in other fields, such as World Community Grid with the Human Proteome Folding project and others like [email protected]

Either way, Folding or Rosetta, they are all in the long term, doing the same thing. Folding Proteins to try to help the advancement of the Human Race and the fight against disease.

For ease of use, I use BOINC on my Gaming Rig and my Mac Mini. My Mac Mini in particular is now Crunching since August 1st, 2012 24/7 [email protected] for the Hardware Canucks team. I may be one of the 10 active members on [email protected] for the team, but I'm okay with that.
