“Folding” against COVID

Sparked by an inquiry by an Oxford patron, The Lane Libraries has been using idle compute cycles on our servers to help with the Rosetta@home distributed computing project. Rosetta@home helps to determine the 3-dimensional shapes of proteins in research that may ultimately lead to finding cures for some major human diseases, including COVID-19. Running the Rosetta program on idle computers helps speed up and extend research.
