Fold For COVID-19 World Map

Help fight COVID-19 with your old laptop, computer or Raspberry Pi

You can help fight COVID-19 with your old laptop, computer or Raspberry Pi by joining it to a science botnet. The University of Washington is using distributed computing to increase the computing power available to find a solution to coronavirus, and your old computer can become part of the effort.

The power of distributed computing is probably most widely known through its nefarious use in botnets to spread computer viruses and malware. So it is perhaps fitting that this project will hopefully overturn that perception, as well as help beat a real human virus.

Sign-up your computer to the Fold project here: https://foldforcovid.io/

Your computer will be used to help search molecular structures looking for proteins with properties that will contribute to medicines to prevent COVID-19 virus particles entering cells inorder to reproduce.
