Donate your computer idle time to Microbiome/Crohns/UC research

Hi all,

Just wanted to share this link (unfortunately I can't post the direct link yet but). This program World Community Grid lets you donate your idle computer CPU cycles to research protein folding for different causes. One of their sub projects is to research the microbiome/ various gut bacteria. Google search:

Microbiome Immunity Project

Worth downloading to contribute if anyone is interested.

Like Wildbill I am running it too and have done so for a few month. Most of the time I spend in front of the computer is doing desktop work, and the calculation just runs in the background, no problem!
The control panel says "Work done for this project: 21126" Don't know exactly what that means

Go to this page to learn more: https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/r...p1/overview.do

then click the "contribute to this project" button

cheers
