World Community Grid
This team is a gathering point mostly (while not necessarily only) for Mac Users. Everyone, whether a Mac user or not, is welcome to join this team while trying to aid in solving the complex problems given in the grid.
The mission of World Community Grid is, in their words, “to create the world’s largest public computing grid to tackle projects that benefit humanity”.

If you do not shut your computer down when going to lunch at work, or overnight, you can launch your BOINC application and help the grid parse biological or genetic research samples.
