Folding @ Home is finally going into the Guinness World Records book. Folding @ Home is now the most powerful distributed computing cluster in the world used to study complex medical problems, such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's much more quickly. Vijay Pande, Associate Professor of Chemistry at Stanford University and head of the Folding@home project says, "Without them [the Folding@Home users] we would not be able to make the advancements we have made in our studies of several different diseases." Now that Guinness has recognized the system, it can proudly stand next to luminaries such as the man with the longest fingernails, and fastest land animal. OCC has it's very own Folding @ Home Team, more info can be found by clicking here.
