Icon BOINC 6.6.20

Use the idle time on your computer (Windows, Mac, or Linux) to cure diseases, study global warming, discover pulsars, and do many other types of scientific research. It's safe, secure, and easy.
BOINC lets you donate computing power to scientific research projects such as:
- Climateprediction.net: study climate change
- Einstein@home: search for gravitational signals emitted by pulsars
- LHC@home: improve the design of the CERN LHC particle accelerator
- Predictor@home: investigate protein-related diseases
- Rosetta@home: help researchers develop cures for human diseases
- SETI@home: Look for radio evidence of extraterrestrial life
- Cell Computing biomedical research (Japanese; requires nonstandard client software)
- World Community Grid: advance our knowledge of human disease.
- To participate in a project, download and run BOINC software, then enter the project's URL.
- You can participate in more than one project, and you control the fraction of your computing power that goes to each project. If you participate in several projects, your computer will be kept busy even when one project has no work.

Icon Folding@home 6.24.1

Our goal: to understand protein folding, misfolding, and related diseases

You can help by simply running a piece of software. Folding@Home is a distributed computing project -- people from through out the world download and run software to band together to make one of the largest supercomputers in the world. Every computer makes the project closer to our goals.
Folding@Home uses novel computational methods coupled to distributed computing, to simulate problems thousands to millions of times more challenging than previously achieved.

Icon Xgrid Agent for Mac OS X 10.3

Now any individual or workgroup can quickly build a low-cost supercomputer. Introducing Xgrid, the first distributed computing architecture to be built into a desktop or server operating system. With Xgrid, scientists, animators and digital content creators can run a single job across multiple computers at once - without ever rewriting a single line of code.
The Xgrid Agent for Mac OS X 10.3 allows a computer to contribute compute cycles to an Xgrid network using the new Xgrid pane in System Preferences. This can either be a local grid controlled by Mac OS X Server 10.4, or a global grid being run elsewhere over the Internet.
