Do your bit to find a cure, here’s how…
The team from Navigraph are promoting research into a cure for COVID-19 through the group that they’ve established, Simmers Without Borders. Flight simmers can help by donating spare computing power and, with little to no effort, support the fight against the novel coronavirus. It doesn’t cost anything, takes 3 minutes to setup, and processor usage can be tailored to suit your system. Further details on the Simmers Without Borders (SWB) website, download the client from Folding@Home.
“The effort started as an initiative by some developers at Navigraph, a company in the flight simulation industry, with the aim to use spare or unused computing power to help speed up the search for a coronavirus vaccine. If there is something we in the flight simulation community have in abundance, it is powerful computers!”SWB
“Folding@home (FAH or F@h) is a distributed computing project for simulating protein dynamics, including the process of protein folding and the movements of proteins implicated in a variety of diseases. It brings together citizen scientists who volunteer to run simulations of protein dynamics on their personal computers. Insights from this data are helping scientists to better understand biology, and providing new opportunities for developing therapeutics.”F@h
