    Hey Blackrainbow,

    You might start by reading >This<.

    [email protected] it's a project started by Stanford University to help understand stuff related to protein folding, misfolding, and related diseases. Actually all the people who download this software and run it together make one of the largest supercomputers in the world.
    It's like standing together for a cause, and [email protected] are the members of CH who stand together for this.

      It simulates protein folding and various other molecular dynamics. It does not need you (except to start it, unless you add it to startup) once you have set a few easy options. Name (can be anonymous), team (67290 for ComputerHope, and Password (optional).

      Once you have set this basic options, there is no need to do anything but to start it up.

      If you're asking what it does:

      Once installed the client will download a work packet and then begin to work on that packet, which can take some time depending on the speed of your computer to complete. You can view the status by double-clicking on the icon in your Systray or hovering the mouse above it.

      Basically, the program will download a packet from Stanford University which it will then process and fold. The packet size will depend on your processing speed. Once the packet has been folded, the program sends off the results and receives a new packet, all automatically.
      Just so you know, the program feeds off idle processing power. I haven't experienced any slow-downs at all.
