Use the idle time on your computer (Windows, Mac, Linux, or Android) to cure diseases, study global warming, discover pulsars, and do many other types of scientific research. It's safe, secure, and easy:

  1. Choose projects
  2. Download BOINC software
  3. Enter an email address and password.

Or, if you run several projects, try an account manager such as GridRepublic or BAM!.

For Android devices, download the BOINC app from the Google Play Store or (for Kindle) the Amazon App Store.
