Hi Star Army,

We're in the middle of a global crisis right now that is not going to go away until a vaccine is developed for SARS-COV1 (Coronavirus). The virus can re-infect and will just keep bouncing around the world killing people and flaring up whenever we can't stand being in isolation anymore. With this in mind, tonight Star Army has set up [email protected] team to assist with research on the virus by donating our PC's spare computing power to scientific research. Our team number is 245218. Please join me in this effort if you can.

What is [email protected]?

[email protected] (FAH or [email protected]) 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.

On the forum I saw that so many people have joined that the stats pages may be struggling to keep up. I will look into that today.

Well, the number is right and the team exists - you can see it by putting the number in here: https://apps.foldingathome.org/team - but annoyingly we don't show up on https://stats.foldingathome.org/teams yet. We're supposed to have a team page eventually at https://stats.foldingathome.org/team/245218 (I see I got nothing at my user stats page here either https://stats.foldingathome.org/donor/StarArmy ) - According to the forum you won't appear sometime until after your first work unit is completed.

Stats are still fuxxored due the huge number of new people (like us!) joining the [email protected] community to assist COVID/Corona research.

Finally, a work unit! And it's a Coronavirus one, too!
