With the global community working hard to cope with Coronavirus, our thoughts are with all of those affected. We are one global community, and all of us must do what we can to address the pandemic. If you don't already, I strongly encourage all of our volunteers to contribute to Folding@Home. They are now working on COVID-19 and need all the computing power they can get. See the link below for more information.

Thank you, and take care!

Hello,
I was wondering if Rosetta@Home also contributes to finding cure for coronavirus. They seem to be more open with their research, but seemingly no one uses it as much as Folding@Home. Is it less effective or just less popular?

I can't speak to the quality or efficacy of either project's research, but you're correct that both are working on COVID-related jobs right now. I am personally just happy when people contribute to either one!
