How much time does it take for one analysis? That could be the

Then, from the server, the client would get a set of deformation to the
protein. (Joint F, 20º - 30º increment .001º, in a certain plane.) Test
all those, then report back. Each degree, or whatever division thereof,
would be a block.

Every night/week/month, instead of the stats run (or in addition too, if
there's enough processor power there), the server would compile all the
data, mesh the results, and pick new sets to test. These would be

Of course, the complicated part will be in creating that server.
