I'm looking for an OpenSource protein folding program under Linux, so I could take a look at the source code and figure out how it works...

I'd suggest that a better way into the problem is to study the research papers. The code's not likely to be particularly enlightening and even if you got to understand exactly how one group did it, that wouldn't tell you anything about how other groups do it, or which aspects of the programs are seen as cool and which as kludges.

There's a list of research groups here
<http://www.fccc.edu/research/labs/roder/folding_groups.html>
that will give you a starting point to find either literature or code.

Cheers, Dave
