“World Community Grid's mission is to create the largest public computing grid benefiting humanity. Our work is built on the belief that technological innovation combined with visionary scientific research and large-scale volunteerism can change our world for the better. Our success depends on individuals - like you - collectively contributing their unused computer time to this not-for-profit endeavor.”
PLCMC is one of the newest partners in this amazing humanitarian/technology project that harnesses unused computing power to fight AIDS, study and compare genomes and proteomes (human protein structures) and seek a cure for cancer. And in looking through the list of over 300 partners, it looks like we just may also be the first public library too – Could that really be true?
