    heh...

    The whole point of this is to arrive at the "Holy Grail" for biochemistry/medicine. The ability to predict structure from sequence data alone is what we're after. It's easy to get a protein sequence for a molecule of interest, but to get the structure (so you can BEGIN to think about function) takes a long time and lots of luck using techniques like X-ray crystallography and NMR.

    Well, it looks like he is some sort of Marylin Manson taken freshly out of the fridge.

    Nudging this thread back toward folding...

    I came across this article, from 2002, but it's still interesting and I assume, since then, the process has improved:

    Folding is Fun

    I thought I made a mistake once, but, of course, I was mistaken.

    Yeah should happen soon. Hmmm I'm maxed out at this point with no way to retaliate. I'll find a way before you get too far ahead. /me shakes his fist at retsaw....Although with the strength of several of the other newcomers it won't be long until we're both overtaken!

    I think we're over 50 producing members now too. We have 56 members but there's some deadwood in there. Yay us!

    i give ions half the credit for cs.wiu.edu, since it was his rampant whoring of F@H that made me do it

    so how long have ya'll been folding?

    I have been doing it for only about 10 days and am racking up some fast numbers.

    i have an advantage, i think. I am in charge of our VMWare environment and can secretly build Guest OS's to fold on. I'm gona build a 2 CPU box tomorow to add to my totals.
