Join Blu-ray Entertainment Center’s Folding@Home team by folding either your PS3 or computers at home. Our Team # is 163482
If you need help setting up then visit our forums and in the PS3 section there is a stickied thread on the matter.
HOW FOLDING WORKS
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, and Parkinson’s disease. To use the Folding@home client, you do not have to be connected to the Internet continuously. The client will download a set of data to process, called a work unit, and until that work unit is done, no inet connection is required. Once it is finished, the processed work unit will be uploaded to Stanford University, and another work unit will be downloaded for you to fold.
