  • Folding@home (Folding@Home) - Folding@Home is a program developed by Stanford University that uses a system's CPU to simulate the process of "folding" protein in the human body. This information is then used to better understand how then body folds proteins and how the improper folding of proteins causes severe diseases in the body, including cancer. More information can be found on the Folding@Home website (link found below) and the results and benchmarks of this breakthrough research can also be found on the main website (also found below). This program does not take up a large amount of space and only require a simple start command in a terminal on boot. Help save lives! Make a difference! KDE-Application
