Folding@home And Curing Disease

Recommended Posts

"It takes about a year and costs about $120,000 to obtain the structure of a single protein through X-ray crystallography, according to an estimate from the University of Toronto. More recently, two other experimental methods—nuclear magnetic resonance and cryogenic electron microscopy—have also been used."

So, I have donated $82,800,000 worth of protein folding at this point for Cancer Research.

The A.R.I. Cancer moonshot started 5/20/2024 and has been continuously running at 70% power since that date still working toward a cancer cure. The moonshot will continue until the graphics card on this computer stops functioning at this power level which will be replaced after it suffers catastrophic failure.


The Current Amount as of 6/8/2024.




Current Protein that is being folded as of right now.
