Folding@home (FAH or F@h) is a distributed computing project for performing molecular dynamics simulations of protein dynamics.

Folding@home is one of the world's fastest computing systems. With heightened interest in the project as a result of the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic, the system achieved a speed of approximately 1.22 exaFLOPS, or 2.43 x86 exaFLOPS, by April 12, 2020, making it the world's first exaFLOP computing system.

Team UCC

UCC's Folding@Home Team Number is 261452

The statistics for the UCC team can be found at

Clubroom Desktops fold with the name ACC_Murphy, and the passkey is stored in uccpass

Installing Folding at Home clients

Instructions for installation of the Folding@Home clients can be found at

Installation of Folding at Home clients at UCC

As at April 2020, the ClubroomDesktops that have Linux installed on them, had the Linux Folding@Home clients installed on them. This was due using the UCC Ansible SOE using the folding-at-home.yml playbook

This is in support of Folding@Home efforts to undertake research on COVID-19

TLDR; I just want to join the UCC team
