Folding@Home - Results?

Postposted on Tue Mar 17, 2009 12:11 am

As much as this might appear to be this is not a troll thread. With the huge amount of computing power directed at this project has any of the results been usefully used in research ? And has any drugs or trials resulted from this? Just curious is all. Articles and links are appreciated.

Just read carefully on Stanford's folding site. The papers are all there. ;)

No drugs yet, because Folding is the underlying science. Applying the science is someone else's (other researchers and drug companies?) job. Basic research accumulates a lot of raw information, the next step is the application. Both steps take time and the basic research may not lead to anything. That's the way it is.
