Well guys and gals, we have our own little home now for us folders.
I'll be moving threads and starting guides and basically get this up and running. Any and all suggestions and/or help would be greatly appreciated!

Folding@Home is a distributed computing project which studies protein folding
, misfolding, aggregation, and related diseases
. We use novel computational methods and large scale distributed computing, to simulate timescales thousands to millions of times longer than previously achieved. This has allowed us to simulate folding for the first time, and to now direct our approach to examine folding related disease.What are proteins and why do they "fold"?
Proteins are biology's workhorses -- its "nanomachines
." Before proteins can carry out their biochemical function, they remarkably assemble themselves, or "fold
." The process of protein folding, while critical and fundamental to virtually all of biology, remains a mystery. Moreover, perhaps not surprisingly, when proteins do not fold correctly (i.e. "misfold"), there can be serious effects, including many well known diseases
, such as Alzheimer's, Mad Cow (BSE), CJD, ALS, Huntington's, and Parkinson's disease.Folding@Home, Main Site Folding DownloadFolding@Home, PROnetworks Team PageFolding@Home: Extreme Overclocking - Detailed Stats PagePROnetworks Team Number: 13790Team Ranking (incl. aggregate) 308 of 43624
