Hi, I just deleted a program on my computer that was a "medical research tool" (the words on the accompanying website)... re: the ATI products. Do you have any information on this? (It also used the term "genetic programming")
I think what you are talking about is Folding@Home.
It's protein folding software that is submitted to Stanford (I believe).
This is because as far as computing goes, graphics cards can currently outdo several home grade computers (2.0 Teraflops  vs 52 Gigaflops [i7 920 @ 3.2ghz]).
