I've only looked into briefly as at work right now, but I believe you can also contribute on fold.it by solving puzzles manually. The idea being that humans are better at pattern matching and that eventually the results of the puzzles could be used to improve AI pattern matching.

Do you know if there's some sort of open-source COVID research lab, whether on GitHub or elsewhere? I'd be interested to see how the process for finding a vaccine works.

In normal times you'd expect biotech companies to strongly guard their proprietary r&d. But for a global pandemic like COVID, surely the incentive for everyone is to share research in real-time to find a cure faster?
