EDIT: Please note that a PS3 IS NOT required to participate. Any computer can be used.

I have started a Folding@Home team using my PS3 and home and work PC's while not playing games. I encourage anyone and everyone to join in, whether you are a 760 member or not. If you have a PS3 you can d/l the software under the Network tab. Instructions for configuring and joining a team are also there. You don't need a PS3 of course; any PC with an internet connection will work.

Our Team 760 page is here: http://fah-web.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/mai ... mnum=70586 Our team # is 70586.

If you don't know what the Folding@Home project is, read about it here: http://folding.stanford.edu/

Sure. :wink:

Our goal: to understand protein folding, misfolding, and related diseases

What is protein folding and how is folding linked to disease? Proteins are biology's workhorses -- its "nanomachines." Before proteins can carry out these important functions, they assemble themselves, or "fold." The process of protein folding, while critical and fundamental to virtually all of biology, in many ways remains a mystery.

Moreover, when proteins do not fold correctly (i.e. "misfold"), there can be serious consequences, including many well known diseases, such as Alzheimer's, Mad Cow (BSE), CJD, ALS, Huntington's, Parkinson's disease, and many Cancers and cancer-related syndromes.

You can help by simply running a piece of software. Folding@Home is a distributed computing project -- people from through out the world download and run software to band together to make one of the largest supercomputers in the world. Every computer makes the project closer to our goals.

Folding@Home uses novel computational methods coupled to distributed computing, to simulate problems thousands to millions of times more challenging than previously achieved.

Coolness Blake. It might take a while for names to show on the team list. I'm partway through the first project expected to be completed by about 8pm tonight. I assume you are on the same one, P3172_supervillain_e12?

Yes, I think the triangle is the Help button: hold it down and you will see how to navigate after you install F@H.

alpha helices and beta pleated sheets?

tertiary and quarternary levels of structure?

mRNA and tRNA working together with signal transduction pathways to regulate the expressions of genes and effectively which proteins are created in the cell and which aren't?

Or the transport of proteins through the nuclear pore complex when necessary, involving the NLS (nuclear locating signal) complex and the protein importin?

So it's like SETI@Home, but for the PS3?

I'd join, but don't have a PS3. :cry:
