Catalyst Participates in The UW's Rosetta@home Project
Heeding the campus-wide call to optimize sharable UW resources, Catalyst recently joined the UW's own Rosetta@home project.
Now in the wee hours of the night, while seemingly idle, computers in the Catalyst Computing Resource Center in Mary Gates Hall are actually processing data, and helping to find cures for HIV/AIDS, cancer, Alzheimer's and other human diseases. The Rosetta@home project, run by the Baker Laboratory in the UW Department of Biochemistry, takes advantage of distributed computing, a technique which pools the processing power of multiple idle computers, and attempts to develop methods to predict and design protein structures and protein complexes.
