    CASP9 Challenge is underway, more help needed...

    The CASP9 challenge at Rosette@Home is now underway, they are trying to do blind predictions, competing against many other teams. The competition actually started in May and runs through the summer. If you can spare any more CPU time for this project, it will really help the project.

    Also interesting that they will be hooking up their Rosetta Server that scientists from around the world use for real research projects to BOINC so by helping with this project you are not only helping Rosetta improve their prediction algorithms but also helping with real scientific research projects that are ongoing. More details for CASP9 and this here: http://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/fo...ad.php?id=5308

    Also some good news about work they are doing with the influenza virus. They found a protein that tightly binds to influenza and think it might block the virus from infecting cells. They are starting testing of this now. It seems Rosetta@Home has been doing great at working on real scientific problems and showing actual results. More details on this here: http://boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta/fo...rap=true#65709

    I'll put a little on it on Monday and in about 18 days, when I've reach 1 Mil on Docking, I'll shift priorities.

    I didn't realise CASP had started already. I'll finish up some other work and then switch.

    Nice, thanks guys. I have been helping with CASP for years now, that sure does bring back memories to the Distributed Folding project too.

    I think he is too scared, he couldn't possibly compete with the power that you bring...

    Oddly, the only work units I'm getting with any mention of CASP in the name are "casp8". That seems strange, but I suppose they know what they are doing. I hope we're not reprocessing last year's data (unless that is the intention!).

    Only in the GPU world.

    He's got about 5 times the number of CPUs that I've got.

    Quick, somebody get them to bring out a GPU app and I promise you will see some smoke.

    Shhhh, we are supposed to be getting him riled up enough to switch over some CPU power to the project.... Whatever you do, don't let him know about this secret tactic...

    When will Rosetta stop handing out CASP related work units? End of July?

    Not 100% sure, asking on their forums will get back to you.
