Fight Aids @ Home

You can help find a cure for aids by running some software on your computer. This is a site of a wonderful collaborative computing project. People all over the world are helping to find a cure by running a program that completes individual "work units" for the research project. The software downloads a workunit, analyzes it, and then sends the results back to the research center. This method of computer teamwork makes many problems solvable that would have taken too long to solve with a single supercomputer.
