Anyone with a computer can now help scientists find a cure for the Zika virus

A new online virtual experiment led by Rutgers University researchers could help find the cure for the Zika virus by using math and donated computer power.

With nearly a month away from the first day of summer, scientists across the world are concerned about what the warmer weather will bring.

The virus is spread primarily through the bite of an infected mosquito and is suspected to be the leading cause of microcephaly, a disease that has led to the birth of thousands of babies with underdeveloped brains.

In a worldwide effort, a team of scientists are extending their research power by using technology to find a cure.
