Joint initiatives of ordinary people and entrepreneurs are now obligatory activities in the field of social responsibility. Folding@Home is a computer project to learn about protein dynamics. The initiative brings together volunteer scientists who simulate protein movements on their computers. The information obtained from this research enables scientists to better understand biological processes.
iCEA Group is contributing to the Folding@Home project by providing the power of its computers to be used for computation purposes to help scientists better understand the structures of the virus that causes COVID-19. Computational resources will be used for computer simulations that will enable a closer understanding of the mobile parts of the enzymes that make up the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. These proteins defeat our immune system and cause the virus to multiply. Observing their movements is extremely important as it allows you to gain valuable information that cannot be obtained in any other way. The goal is obvious – to develop treatments for COVID-19 treatment.
-The whole world is looking for a way to defeat the new virus. It is imperative to take immediate action – to the best of your ability. Joint actions can help in a more effective fight against the pandemic, which is why we donate the power of over 20 dedicated computers to the Folding@Home project and invite the entire industry to join the initiative “Poland vs. COVID-19 “. I hope that our joint efforts will contribute to achieving the goal faster. – says Jacek Dziura, Marketing Director at the iCEA Group.
The amount of computing power needed to perform research is enormous, so anyone can join the action and make a small contribution to help discover possible COVID-19 treatment options. Support in the fight against the coronavirus shows social solidarity in the face of the threat. We encourage everyone to join the Folding @ Home campaign! Instructions for joining and additional information about the group “Poland vs COVID-19” can be found at www.grupa-icea.pl/koronawirus. Companies such as Oracle and Avast have also joined the Folding@Home initiative. After all, there is strength in the numbers!
