PC gamers are being asked to donate their unused computational power to help researchers better understand the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
[email protected] is a distributed computing project for disease research which uses idle resources to simulate protein folding.
By downloading [email protected], PC gamers can help researchers develop treatments for COVID-19, which has so far killed over 8,000 people and caused global disruption.
"The data you help us generate will be quickly and openly disseminated as part of an open science collaboration of multiple laboratories around the world, giving researchers new tools that may unlock new opportunities for developing lifesaving drugs," said [email protected] director Greg Bowman in a post detailing the project.
Early projects are geared around understanding how the virus interacts with human host cells, and developing new antibodies to disrupt it.
