Compute for Science

  • BOINC lets you help cutting-edge science research using your computer. The BOINC app, running on your computer, downloads scientific computing jobs and runs them invisibly in the background. It's easy and safe.

  • About 30 science projects use BOINC. They investigate diseases, study climate change, discover pulsars, and do many other types of scientific research.

  • The BOINC and Science United projects are located at the University of California, Berkeley and are supported by the National Science Foundation.
