About 30 science projects use BOINC; examples include Rosetta@home, Einstein@Home, and IBM World Community Grid. These projects investigate diseases, study global warming, discover pulsars, and do many other types of scientific research.
You can participate in either of two ways:
BOINC is a platform for high-throughput computing on a large scale (thousands or millions of computers). It can be used for volunteer computing (using consumer devices) or grid computing (using organizational resources). It supports virtualized, parallel, and GPU-based applications.
BOINC is distributed under the LGPL open source license. It can be used for commercial purposes, and applications need not be open source.
