Understanding how proteins self-assemble ("protein folding") is a holy
modern molecular biophysics. What makes it such a great challenge is its
complexity, which renders simulations of folding extremely computationally
demanding and difficult to understand.
Folding@home group has developed a new way to simulate protein folding
dynamics") which should remove the previous barriers to simulating protein
folding. However, this method is extremely computationally demanding and

ease-of-use for both the home/office and servers. It is freely available in
many languages throughout the world.
Perhaps the biggest disappointments were the ones you expected anyway.
