Too lazy to post the summary but I'll post the system requirements  Grin:

For the Genome Comparison project, the minimum requirements are:

    * At least a 160MHz Intel Pentiumâ„¢ processor or equivalent
    * At least 60 MB RAM (with virtual memory enabled)
    * At least 25 MB free disk space available for use by the project (in the agent install directory)
    * The ability to display 8-bit graphics at 800x600 resolution
    * An Internet connection with minimum 40 kbps speed
    * Operating System: Windows 98, ME, 2000 or XP

Maybe found a use for some older, less able machines?

My daughters' first machine, a P200 with 128 could run this easy!  Pity I moth-balled it.  I wonder how long the units are and if they're available through boinc yet.   Thinking

Scientists at Cambridge University have identified the gene for gullibility. In a paper published in the journal Nature they explain how the gene causes carriers to believe almost anything they are told, resulting in an increased susceptibility to advertising for pointless products and services.

For years this gene,which is carried by twice as many women as men, has been the Holy Grail of the human genome, provoking particular interest from marketing firms, politicians and estate agents.

I wonder if this is connected? lol
