How does it work?

By running Rosetta@home on your computer when you're not using it you will speed up and extend our efforts to design new proteins and to predict their 3-dimensional shapes. Proteins are the molecular machines and building blocks of life. You can read more about protein folding and design here.

Journal post from David Baker.

NOVA recently featured some of the work that all of you are contributing to: (the 8 minute segment on our work starts at 20:30)

The Economist also had an article on the work you are contributing to:

Your contributions are highlighted particularly clearly in the Geekwire article:
which is titled "Big data (and volunteers) help scientists solve hundreds of protein puzzles"
