One of the greatest challenges facing scientists is to find functions for all of the proteins that are encoded in the Human Genome. When human protein structures are known, scientists can use them to research disease treatments and cures.
Rosetta is fairly memory intensive. The required memory for Rosetta to run is 256 MB ram. If your computer does not have this much ram you will be given cancer work units to crunch.
To have an immediate scientific impact, completing an entire prediction run for the human genome would ideally take less than a year. Before the existence of Grid.org this project wasn't thought possible -- now, the project is on its way to being completed.
