    Anyone else folding this protein (project 2363)? It's a double gromacs core project, and on my 1.8DP G5 it's taking 1:09 per percent! I.e., a 4.9 day folding project! It's not listed on the folding@home website, so I can's see how many points it's worth.

    Bah mAcP is nothing ;). Check out Titin! It's the largest protein in the body weighing in at over 38,000 amino acids and 4,200kDa :eek:. That's a real protein :p .

    I don't know if it's the same protein, but I've a had a couple that take 5-6 days on my dual 2.0, but I ended up getting over 800 points for them

    Thanks for this post. I forgot I paused my work on the G5 !
    I am letting Macrumors team down again :(

    I just started doing this whole "Folding" thing. Somehow it feels more useful than SETI...of course, I'll be kicking myself if and when something is found using SETI. :D
