Teams & Stats

One of the best ways to help Folding@home is by recruiting your friends and family. Start by sharing our project with them. Then join a team or even start your own team. The more points you and your team earn, the closer we come to finding cures.

Monitoring stats updates automatically: available downloads and rules of use

The donor and team stats are updated every hour, although this can be delayed if there were a lot of work units to come back during that hour. We have been turning off web access to the stats database during stats updates (usually on the hour).

Please do not use scripts to access the donor or team pages, but use the full donor list (flat files) instead. IP addresses which do not abide by our robots.txt rules will be banned.

The donor and team lists are generated now every hour and can be downloaded once an hour from these links:

Downloads of the daily donor and team lists should be limited to no more than 24 downloads a day.
