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.
From TechnoSports, our team will be utilizing as much PC juice we can to fight against the virus, so to, raise the awareness among all you gamers and enthusiasts, please use your CPU and GPU for a good cause.
It doesn’t matter if you do not have an RTX or Vega GPU or a Core i9 or Ryzen 9 CPU if you have a computer, contribute to the research on Coronavirus by downloading Folding@home here. You can learn more about using Folding@home’s coronavirus-centred project here.
