Join the fight against the Coronavirus!

Join the fight against the Coronavirus! Join the SWS [email protected] team and get a 5€ discount on any SWS product!

Like everyone else, we are pretty much stuck at home during the fight against the Coronavirus. However, there is a way we can fight back, by participating in the [email protected] project.

[email protected] is a project started by Stanford University and takes advantage of unused CPU and GPU resources to simulate protein movements and folding. More than 400,000 users are participating in the project and its results are used to advance research in diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson and recently, SARS-CoV2.

SWS have started a [email protected] team and we are inviting you to join us!

To join the SimWorks Studios [email protected] team, please follow these steps:

1. Go to https://apps.foldingathome.org/getpasskey and generate a passkey for you.

2. Download the [email protected] installer from here https://foldingathome.org/start-folding/

3. Run the installer and enter the following:

    a. Your chosen nickname

    b. Team number: 257458 (That is the SWS team number) 

    c. Your passkey

 

4. Select folding power and mode ("on idle" or "always"). Then just leave it running on the background. 

 
5. Send a mail to [email protected], containing your [email protected] nickname and the email you used to register on the SWS site.
 
You can check our team's progress at https://stats.foldingathome.org/team/257458.
 
If your [email protected] account manages to complete at least one(1) work unit by April 12th, you will be eligible for a 5€ discount on any SWS product. We encourage you to try for more work units though.
