    Install Folding at home, use idle downtime on your computer to help analyze protein structures. Every bit helps, we can accelerate learning on this exponentially if we all do a little here. I know a lot of us have some great rigs.

    Thank you for posting this. What a great idea. I've got some serious CPU cycles that could be put to good use in this crisis. Downloading and installing now!

    Thanks! Second best thing you can do is share this with everyone you know with edit or gaming rigs. I know these things may not seem like much, but six degrees seperation, etc. and a lot of hands make a load lighter.

    Given the exponential growth rate of the virus, and how long implementation of any findings can take, imagine the difference of shaving a month off of compute time. Since people have started sharing this in the last week, the total number of systems helping has jumped from 30,000 to 400,000. What if we got that to a million?
