Pande Group, Chemistry Department, Stanford University

The Pande group works on theory and simulations of how proteins, RNA, and nanoscale synthetic polymers fold. We wrote the client and server code for the Genome@home project. We run and maintain virtually all aspects of the project, in addition to doing the scientific work that goes into and comes out of Genome@home.

Special thanks to all the contributors and users involved with the Folding@home project, which paved the way for Genome@home.

Desjarlais Lab, Chemistry Department, Penn State University

The sequence design algorithm of the Genome@home code is known as SPA (Sequence Prediction Algorithm). This algorithm was developed and coded by John Desjarlais (formerly at the Chemistry Department, Penn State University).


The Cosm project has made significant contributions to Genome@home by developing the tools (Mithral CS-SDK) necessary to build the client and server code, especially the networking and platform independence routines. Adam Beberg is the main force behind Cosm, although there are several people involved in its development.
