30-something bewildered illumini from the University of Glasgow; still living in the West End. I had been running SETI@home since I first heard about it and when it reached the top-10 list of the world's largest (known) computers, I could not help but feel a pinch of pride in beign part of that. Now I endeavour to volunteer any computer I operate to Rosetta@home. It's healthier for my PC's to stay on all the time, and the cost of electricity is worth the effort.
Your opinions about Rosetta@home
Just like English poetry consists of 26 letters - proteins are written by 20 Amino Acids. But before I saw structures called "Nitrogen-splitting Anvil" (1N2C) and the "Potassium Channel" (1BL8) on PDB's Molecule of the Month (http://www.rcsb.org/pdb/) I had no idea just how beautiful and powerful these molecules can be - I am moved by the genius!
