A quote from Peom at home wikipedia

POEM@Home was a volunteer computing project hosted by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and running on the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) software platform. It modeled protein folding using Anfinsen's dogma. POEM@Home was started in 2007 and, due to advances using GPUs that rendered the BOINC program redundant, concluded in October 2016.[1][2] The POEM@home applications were proprietary.


I recall that poem did protein folding. Perhaps the "folding a home" project made poem redundant?

Perhaps one of the Wikipedia editors here at BOINC can correct their conclusions.
