Folding@home is a distributed computing project -- people from throughout
the world download and run software to band together to make one of the
largest supercomputers in the world.  Every computer takes the project
closer to our goals.

Folding@home uses novel computational methods coupled to distributed
computing, to simulate problems millions of times more challenging than
previously achieved.

Protein folding is linked to disease, such as Alzheimer's, ALS,
Huntington's, Parkinson's disease, and many Cancers.  Moreover, when
proteins do not fold correctly (i.e. "misfold"), there can be serious
consequences, including many well known diseases, such as Alzheimer's,
Mad Cow (BSE), CJD, ALS, Huntington's, Parkinson's disease, and many
cancers and cancer-related syndromes.

biology/linux-foldingathome needs to run as root?
(also: update to 5.0.4)

        Upon installing FoldingAtHome I ran the software from a
        user account only to find that I was stuck in a loop of
        trying to enter configuration options. Shortly thereafter
        I realized that it was trying to write to
        /usr/local/share/foldingathome, and therefore requires being
        run as root to write there unless one changes permissions
        there. Seing as this isn't installed with a startup script
        for daemonization, and running as root seems a little
        excessive for this application, should this be adapted to
        run from a user account or set up to be able to start at
        boot?

And from maintainer:

        This diff updates the port to version 5.04, and adds
        support to running as normal user using ~/.fah
        directory.
