Default Supercomputer sets protein-folding record

A specially designed supercomputer named Anton has simulated changes in a protein's three-dimensional structure over a period of a millisecond a time-scale more than a hundred-fold greater than the previous record.
And it took 100 days...

Simulating the basic pancreatic trypsin inhibitor over the course of a millisecond took Anton about 100 days
