A computer screensaver is launched on Tuesday that will help scientists find
a cure for cancer.

The project - a collaboration between Oxford University and an American
technology company - hopes to reach millions of home computers around the
world.

And if successful, the British-designed software could accelerate research
into new cancer drugs by several years.

The screensaver can be downloaded free from United Devices - the company
behind the Seti at home project - which uses unused computing power to search
the skies for extraterrestrial life.
