A point of interest, for experts who visit this board, is that this Stanford protein folding stuff actually uses some pretty hardcore probabilistic models. Persi Diaconis gave a lecture on Markov Chains at my university this fall and much of the work he did was motivated by this project (essentially, for computational reasons the researchers wanted to see if the protein folding could be modeled well by a Markov Chain within a Bayesian framework). So, really interesting stuff from a statistics/probability theory point of view is here as well.
