Folding@Home and research on SARS-CoV-2


The Helmholtz platform HIFIS, the HZDR and the Center for Advanced Systems Understanding (CASUS) support the world-wide project Folding@Home in developing an antibody based therapy to prevent a respiratory infection by the virus. For this, a significant portion of the high performance computing capacity is provided to assist in computing protein structures of the Corona virus. The detailed knowledge of such structures is decisive to develop a successful therapy. In a coordinated effort with the computing center of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden - Rossendorf, free resources of the CASUS high performance computer and the HZDR high performance computer “Hemera” are being combined.
