Once scientists understand the function and structure of proteins, they can design them medicines that will stop them. However, determining the structure and movement of proteins is not easy, as there are many moving parts involved. Proteins can be studied in different stages through simulations computers, a task that requires enormous computing power.

To this end, Folding @ home encourages users around the world to donate the computing power of their computers to help discover coronary artery disease.

The company has started a project, which involves distributed computers and works with the use of aggregates GPU and CPU. The initiative was launched in February and has so far reached over 470 petaFLOPS. This means that it is twice as fast as him Summit, the fastest supercomputer in the world.
