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.

Software Included

Getting started after deploying Folding@home

By default when the VM is created, Folding@home is installed and running with the default user (Anonymous), the default team (0), at medium power, and with no passkey. To configure these parameters, ssh on to the VM and execute the following:

sudo /etc/init.d/FAHClient stop
FAHClient --configure
# enter your desired configuration
# copy/merge this configuration over to /etc/fahclient/config.xml
sudo /etc/init.d/FAHClient start
