WAFTE - Folding@Home

Hey All, we could use your help. WAFTE proudly helps support protein folding research.

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 throughout the world download and run software to band together to make one of the largest supercomputers in the world. Every computer takes the project closer to our goals. Folding@home uses novel computational methods coupled to distributed computing, to simulate problems millions of times more challenging than previously achieved.

Currently our team is ranked 17377 out of 128357 teams world wide. We have many new members since I started the team. We can do quite a bit more.

If you want to assist, you will have to download some software that runs in the background of your computer. You can find the download and more information at Folding@home - Download the Folding@home software application

Remember to use 65446 as the team number when you set up the software. This will ensure that WAFTE members are acknowledged in the support of this very important research.

Look at team 65446. I also would like to hear from him. He definately helped make FTE fun, even when he got in trouble with the mods, or should I say especially when he got in trouble!...LMFAO
