Excellent post Steven!! I just stumbled upon it. I was wondering when some of these projects would end. I thought it interesting that within 8 months three projects will end, and within two years all but two will be completed. I hope both HCC and HCMD projects will benefit with the end of the other projects. That will no doubt speed up the other project's completion dates. I am becoming a big fan of WCG of late.

Where did you get this data?

I'm sure there will be more projects that come along to fill the gaps... Although, I think this is the most projects that have run simultaneously so the predicted dates of completion have probably been pushed a little farther out than they were.

Hi,

Not sure whether to post this query in this thread or under the thread of CPID issues.

There seems to be some discrepancy in the WCG points shown on their website and the points visible on BAM. My points as shown on WCG, under 2 names - 'guptasuneet' and 'Suneet Gupta', are 6,907 and 39,205. However, the points as shown on BAM are 986.92 and 5,600.04 respectively. There seems to be a multiple of 7 in the difference in these stats. Could anybody guide me as to the reason for this discrepancy.

Suneet:


Up till about 2 years ago, WCG was a stand-alone project.

When they saw the error of their ways [and admitted that the BOINC software was far superior to UD] they set up the 7X differential from their own system to BOINC.

A great project in which you can donate your computer's idle processing time to great medical work such as curing cancer or predicting protein structures.

So many spend their days inventing ways to ruin lives... bankers selling toxic stuff to people who trusted them and even causing the sinking of whole enterprises... employers operating very far out of the law (even when the law is quite favorable to them)...

Let's play in another team, let's help scientists help humanity. If you are better, I am too.

I would be running Boinc even if my mother hadn't died by cancer a few years ago.

Open and supportive


World Community Grid exemplifies IBM's principles of collaboration. IBM partners with the University of California at Berkley, using its BOINC software (Berkley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing) to run the grid. In turn, IBM contributes to BOINC's improvement, particularly in security and ease of use.

The World Community Grid team helps scientists prepare research projects for grid computing, process results and reconfigure work for further computation. In return, research partners must commit to open publication of their results.

To encourage growth of the grid, IBM works with hundreds of organizations to help promote the issues addressed by the research. World Community Grid is itself a large social network with networking tools provided through the grid's web site as well as through applications on Facebook and Twitter. Media and social network activity leads to around 200 new volunteers joining the grid daily.

Demonstrating IBM's commitment to open computing, World Community Grid's host servers run on Linux and client software is available for Microsoft Windows, Apple Macintosh and Linux.

One of the World Community Grid’s most recent projects, “Developing Dengue Drugs – Together,” illustrates the potential of combining grid computing with high performance computing systems, or ’supercomputing,’ to speed the discovery of small molecules for drug development.

Led by Dr. Stan Watowich and his research team at The University of Texas Medical Branch, “Developing Dengue Drugs – Together” aims to find compounds to combat the family of viral diseases called flaviviruses, which include Dengue Fever, West Nile Virus, Hepatitis C and Yellow Fever. These diseases cause massive loss of life and resources throughout the world, with Dengue Fever infecting 50 to 100 million people each year and West Nile Virus spreading rapidly throughout the U.S. and Europe. There are no effective drugs to treat any of these diseases.

Flaviviruses are structurally and functionally similar and depend on a common enzyme, the NS3 protease, for viral replication. Knowing the shape and mechanism of this protease allowed Watowich’s research team to predict a method of disease disruption. But to test the three million potential drug molecules that could act as protease inhibitors was impossible given their on-site capacity.

“To do the drug discovery project in an accurate way would have required tens of thousands of years of computing time,” Watowich said. “So we talked with TACC and it became clear that a distributed computing approach would be very valuable. We decided to take advantage of what IBM had established and approached them about running our project on the World Community Grid.”

Using the free resources of the World Community Grid, more than 60,000 years worth of computing can be completed each year.

Scientists have devised a way to automate and accelerate a manual, complex process that enables researchers to more easily discover the structure of cancer-related proteins, and, eventually, formulate cancer cures. This new, automated approach may also help the exploration of other diseases and food-related research.

The breakthrough announced today was made by the Help Conquer Cancer project in conjunction with IBM (NYSE: IBM) and World Community Grid, a system of linked personal computers from volunteers who donate spare processing power for humanitarian projects. World Community Grid, sponsored by IBM, provides researchers around the world with the equivalent of millions of dollars of free computational power to enable medical, nutrition, energy and environmental research.

Tapping World Community Grid, the Help Conquer Cancer Project created a system that accurately recognizes when protein samples undergo a solidifying process called crystallization, which makes the proteins ready for further examination by special x-ray. The process is necessary for identifying, and eventually exploring, how the structure, shape and interaction of some proteins may have a role in causing cancer.

Using the Grid, scientists trained the system to successfully recognize 80% of crystal-bearing images and 98% of the clear drops of protein solution that existed prior to crystallization. This enables six times as many images per protein to be examined compared to human review, and in dramatically less time.

It looks like World Community Grid and the Global Online Fight Against Malaria have started the new WCG sub-project

to help find new drugs that can stop the spread of malaria infections and help cure drug-resistant strains.

Waiting for the official announcement...., but meanwhile crunching this new GFAM-project
