Boring statistics: WCG

Well, there’s been another long break between updates. No changes to the hardware have occurred over this period but the Core2Quad Linux box will be upgraded to i7 when I get a Round Tuit. I’ve just been too lazy to assemble the thing; perhaps I’ll bestir myself after the Sapphire snail has made its appearance? By the way — Hey, SN2S badge designers: I love the snail!

Total computing time exceeds 67 CPU years; current points ranking is 549.

Two new projects have been added to the World Community Grid family:

Global Online Fight Against Malaria (GFAM):

The mission of the GO Fight Against Malaria project is to discover promising drug candidates that could be developed into new drugs that cure drug resistant forms of malaria. The computing power of World Community Grid will be used to perform computer simulations of the interactions between millions of chemical compounds and certain target proteins, to predict their ability to eliminate malaria. The best compounds will be tested and further developed into possible treatments for the disease.

GFAM is run by the Scripps Institute.

Say No to Schistosoma:

The mission of the Say No to Schistosoma project is to identify potential drug candidates that could possibly be developed into treatments for schistosomiasis. The extensive computing power of World Community Grid will be used to perform computer simulations of the interactions between millions of chemical compounds and certain target proteins. This will help find the most promising compounds that may lead to effective treatments for the disease.

SN2S is run by Infórium University in Belo Horizonte and FIOCRUZ-Minas, Brazil.

With the bronze badge for SN2S I am inducted into Club 21, which still means I’ve participated in every World Community Grid project since its inception.
