In this video, researchers from Utrecht University use grid computing to digitally modify molecules found in cone snail venom in an effort to develop new anesthetics. The grid allows them to run a lot of trial and error tests extremely quickly to look for the right molecular shape that will be the perfect fit for the pain receptors in humans.
