It's nothing like that; there's no catch involved. There's a small program that you download, and setup takes just a minute or two. It communicates with the servers at Stanford every day or two to download new work and upload results. It uses only idle clock cycles, which means that when your computer is busy doing other things, the program takes a break so that it does not slow things down.

By proteins, I'm talking about this kind of thing. The research specifically studies the way they behave, and more importantly, misbehave.
