I think I'm in :roll: (just clicked and clicked....).I chose project 513-516
In this project, we simulate the ribosomal S6 protein.
S6 is a 96-residue small protein. (It is big for a simulation study, though.) Experimental studies of this protein showed the role of topology in protein folding. We intend to gain more detailed picture of this topological effect using [email protected]

The program is good but dont leave the graphics console on all day. :!:
I left the program running while I was at work and with all the atoms spinning around on the screen. Got back from work and the screen was really messed up. I was not happy. :evil: PCs fine now after it fixed some errors. Worse thing is im back at 0% complete :cry:
Must have been a hardware or video crash, according to http://forum.folding-community.org/view ... highlight=
The hot weather didnt help as its a laptop so it overheats. One thing this program does not like is an unstable system!
Oh well. Thats the last time I leave it on while im at work :lol:

Seriously tho, it works fine but I wouldn't leave the graphics on for hours. :idea:

Something is working now. I have no idea about it. Anyway, hope I didn't do something wrong...

I'm getting similar results for my laptop. It's intermittingly shutting off for no reason....probably heat.

Ok. I don't think I am clever enough to understand this stuff. Embarassed Enjoy your job guys...

It's not difficult. You just click here download and install the graphical client for your OS and tell it which team to fold for. It does all the work in the background.

I did it after I posted that. I think I couldn't stand calling myself stupid. ;) As I told before, something is 'working' now. :)

I want to ask something, as I'm not very good at computers. My connection has a download limit. Does this stuff have something to do with download and the limit?

Whats your download limit?
From what I saw when i first ran it, the program works by downloading a file (the work unit) which I think was about 3 or 4 MBs for me. No more than 5 MB. The program then runs this file, which i am almost certain doesnt need the internet.
The program then finishes the work unit (i.e. it has ran the simulation to 100%) and then sends the data back to the [email protected] server. I would again guess this file is no more than 5MB. So i think depending on how fast you are able to finish the workunit, you will transfer no more than 10MB in a week or two. Which is nothing.
So i think it wont affect your download limit.

Use your computer power while its idle to help medical research. A distributed computer program to study protein folding. More info on website.

Anyone use it?

Installing it now and you can set up a team. Was going to set up Biology-Online.org. But thought I better check with everyone on here. Would be fun.

Im going to run it now and i'll tell if you if its any good. :D


hi can u pl.... explain me what this web site for . i've visited that already but i didn't understand what is that for

I finally got that program since i can not donwload anything at home- some strange error. Long live science!

It's working but it does take a long time doesn't it.
