 WISDOM vs. Malaria:
Round Two

In the often poorly attended fight against neglected diseases, the World-wide In Silico Docking On Malaria initiative is proving to be a strong contender. WISDOM, which launched its second assault on malaria last month, harnesses the power of grid computing to look for drug candidates to treat the disease.
