Folding@Home is a programme you can download onto your PC. It runs in the background and tries to work out what the protein structures are associated with several diseases: including Covid-19.
Zappateers has a team !

Install the software from https://foldingathome.org/

Select Covid-19 as the protein you want to work on.

Join the Zappateers Team (number 263939).

And watch your PC try to work out a protein structure that will allow the boffins in white coats to find something else that will disable it.

Stay Safe, Wash your Hands, Don't drink Bleach, Crank some Frank and Down with the Nazis.

See you in there.....

Are you being sarcastic?

Team Zappateers is already 48677th out of 252508.

We are owning this folding!

PS Dont worry if your name doesn't appear in the team for a bit - it waits till you finish a folding section then adds you and your points.

These are nice initiatives... I just ran a 6 day analysis (not related to protein folding) in my PC, with fingers crossed for not having an energy spike of my windows shutting down. I figure if it was implemented in such a way it would take a couple of hours...

I checked several web pages, Wikipedia one of them. Looks complete unsuspicious to me.

It's only the application of distributed (cloud) computing for the benefit of Science, no need to get paranoid.
