Scientists to use PCs' power against anthrax
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- A coalition of scientists will ask people to use their computers' extra processing power to help search for a cure for anthrax.
The project follows similar efforts to use "distributed computing" to hunt for extraterrestrial life and a cure for cancer. It is being launched today to help Oxford University scientists find ways to treat anthrax that can no longer be treated by antibiotics.
