BOINC is an app that uses CPU and GPU computing power to help scientists analyze their data about biology (cures for cancer, Alzheimer's, AIDS, Parkinson's, Ebola and so on; or to analyze the evolution effects in human population), about astrophysics (search and study of black holes, neutron stars, solar systems and gravitational waves), and about physics (especially LHC@Home analyzing how the particle accelerator works).
The app does all this automatically. You just have to download it, attach to the project you like and set how much cores to use in the settings. That's all.
