Help Beat Coronavirus with Folding@home, use your CPU & GPU power for a cause

There are a lot of us who own a PC, be it a gaming or a normal one, fighting the deadly Coronavirus is tough and we cannot do it alone. Science is doing its job of cutting through the progress of this global pandemic but it does not have enough resources to get through the workload so fast.

The project was announced by Folding@home a few days ago and has seen a boost of support from the PCMR community. This project aims to run on simulations on user’s computers, simulating potentially druggable protein targets from SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) and the related SARS-CoV virus.

Folding@home is a distributed computing project for disease research that simulates protein folding, computational drug design, and other types of molecular dynamics. The project has been active for nearly 2 decades, and its use has contributed to research applicable to Alzheimer’s, cancer and many viruses.

This initial wave of projects focuses on better understanding how these coronaviruses interact with the human ACE2 receptor required for viral entry into human host cells, and how researchers might be able to interfere with them through the design of new therapeutic antibodies or small molecules that might disrupt their interaction.
