Your opinions about Rosetta@home
I run Rosetta@home because I want to be able to support research into curing disease; my grandmother died of Alzheimer\\\'s, ditto my mother-in-law. Also I think it\\\'s a wonderful way to make use of a resource that normally isn\\\'t used much at all; I hate waste.
