Decrypthon is a technology platform providing the computational power required to process complex data in biology today, whose volume is multiplied by two every year. This thus allows, through technologies called "grids," to gather (in a grid) the capacity of several supercomputers (500 Gflop) installed by IBM in 6 French universities (Bordeaux 1, Lille 1, Paris 6 Jussieu, ENS Lyon, Crihan in Rouen, Orsay) and/or individual personal computers via the World Community Grid, itself a BOINC project. A dozen scientific projects selected through a call for tenders have been completed under the Decrypthon program.

This scientific, technological and human challenge was brilliantly taken up: 75,000 Internet users mobilized, billions of complex calculations performed, 550,000 proteins mapped. It is a library for comparing proteins from different species of living organisms (animal, plant, human). It contains nearly 2.2 million files divided into 17,000 directories.
