What does the screen saver look like when FightAIDS@Home - Phase 2 is running?

Here is a video of the FightAIDS@Home - Phase 2 project graphics:

What does the screen saver show?

The right portion of the screen saver shows both the target and candidate compound molecules, depicted as a collection of small spheres that represent the atoms of each molecule. These are the specific molecules that your device is currently working on.

What does the progress bar in the screen saver represent?

The progress bar towards the bottom of the screen saver represents approximately how much of the current task your device has processed. When it reaches 100%, the computation is complete and the results will then be sent back to World Community Grid, where they will be packaged and delivered to the FightAIDS@Home researchers.

What do the small spheres in the screen saver represent?

The small spheres represent the atoms in both the target molecule and candidate molecule currently being processed by your device.

What does the Scripps Research Institute logo in the screen saver represent?

The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California, is the largest private biomedical research institute in the US and the home of the research team behind the FightAIDS@Home Project.
