True.  Didn't say I was done with them.  Just that they lost points with me.  The folding and predictor are the two that I have intrest in.

Team BBT has moved to World Community Grid (no it's NOT UD.  Different administration, backing and attitude.  Cancer work coming early next year)

Ah cool... if WCG starts issuing Cancer jobs early next year, that's encouraging and perhaps where I'll take my 5 soon to be 6 starbases.  Was planning on shutting down due to no cancer options other than ... uh, that other place after FaD shut down.  Also encouraging WCG offers a Linux client as I have been Linux only for the 3 months I've been crunching for FaD.  No Sony DRM rootkits on my machines Thumbs Up  Plus I don't need to set the agent to crunch under Wine anymore Cheesy  Guess I could fold until then.

Irene,  Keep in mind the following:

Quote
The Human Proteome Folding project will provide scientists with data that predicts the shape of a very large number of human proteins. These predictions will give scientists the clues they need to identify the biological functions of individual proteins within the human body. With an understanding of how each protein affects human health, scientists can develop new cures for human diseases such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, SARS, and malaria.


I lost my mom and uncle to cancer a few years ago, which is what prompted me to join grid.org in 2001.  Now I primarily crunch at WCG because understanding HPF can lead to a cure for cancer.  

You can view a layperson's explanation of the Human Proteome Folding Project here.

[email protected] cheerleader and Mod!!!

I see the likes of WCG and Folding as "disease non-specific" but with the potential for many many applications etc down the line.

Ruling things out is as important as ruling them in.
Every project in every area narrows the search that tiny bit more.....if that makes sense  Confused

I thought it was AIDS specific, although I did skim over the literature and often don't notice the HIv part, it is the project that was [email protected] under BOINC and is now [email protected] and only usable by the Windows UDer, the Linux (and Windows) BOINCers will be able to in a few weeks.  A large funding I gather came from the Gates Foundation.

Not sure on the type of crunching it is though.  Screening ? Research? Testing ?   Too much to read and try to understand and that's just the laymens term parts   Coffee
