How to run it?

You can use this link to download and install your preferred BOINC version for your platform: HERE

You can add projects from the BOINC Manager list.
For example:
BOINC Projects
Whenever you are adding a new project that we support from that list (Denis@Home, Rosetta@Home, SiDock@Home, RNA World, World Community Grid) you always have to make sure that your boid_id has been added properly and that you are part of the corresponding team.

You can switch between simple:
BOINC Simple

and advanced view: BOINC Adv

It's good not to run more than 2 protocols on one machine as there is a minimum of work units that you should be able to provide every day that will generate enough points to generate Boid Power.

In the advanced view --> Options --> Computing preferences
you can setup how much of your resources you want to provide and is BOINC should be running even when you are using the computer
