By joining Proteins@Home, you will be part of a large-scale protein structure prediction project and help to advance an important area of science.By increasing our knowledge of proteins, you will contribute to a better understanding of many diseases and pathologies, and to progress in both medecine and technology. Proteins@Home is not for profit.
Our mission: To enhance clean energy technology by improving hydrogen production and storage.
Hydrogen@Home is a research project that uses Internet-connected computers to do research in Hydrogen Production. Our project is in a conceptual developement phase called "Alpha" Phase, you can participate by downloading and running a free program on your computer.
Hydrogen@Home is an emerging BOINC project in need of volunteers. Hydrogen@Home is not affiliated with any research Institute or University.
Milkyway@home is a research project that uses Internet-connected computers to do research in modeling and determining the evolution of the Milkyway galaxy. You can participate by downloading and running a free program on your computer.
Milkyway@home is based at the Rensselaer Computer Science Department. This particular project is being developed to better understand the power of volunteer computer resources.
What is Predictor@home?
Predictor@home is a world-community experiment and effort to use distributed world-wide-web volunteer resources to assemble a supercomputer able to predict protein structure from protein sequence. Our work is aimed at testing and evaluating new algorithms and methods of protein structure prediction. We recently performed such tests in the context of the Sixth Biannual CASP (Critical Assessment of Techniques for Protein Structure Prediction) experiment, and now need to continue this development and testing with applications to real biological targets. Our goal is to utilize these approaches together with the immense computer power that can be harnessed through the internet and volunteers all over the world (you!) to address critical biomedical questions of protein-related diseases. Predictor@home is a pilot project of the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC)
(This post is a work in progress, that I will continue to update and tweak. The comments are great, with a whole variety of suggestions and details of other setups. I'll try and keep the comments open as long as I can)
