*** Easter Sunday ***

Happy Easter to all. Enjoy the day with family.

According to the Canonical gospels, Jesus rose from the dead on the third day after his crucifixion. His resurrection is celebrated on Easter Sunday.

Easter is a moveable feast, meaning it is not fixed in relation to the civil calendar. The First Council of Nicaea (325) established the date of Easter as the first Sunday after the full moon (the Paschal Full Moon) following the March equinox.

We passed the 13 Billion Milestone for combined BOINC projects. It took us 76 days to earn the last billion cobblestones, let’s try and beat that record to the next billion mile marker.

Congratulations to all members of our team for this awesome accomplishment!

Docking@Home: Docking@Home is Retiring

With a heavy heart, we are announcing the retirement of the Docking@Home project. Unfortunately, we no longer have the resources to maintain the project. Starting on April 30, 2014 Docking@Home will no longer be distributing new jobs but will continue to collect results. On May 23, 2014 the server will stop accepting results as the project enters retirement. We hope that you can use this time to point your workers to new VC projects. (here is a link to active BOINC projects).

Over the past 9 years we’ve had 98,512 Volunteers contribute computing power from 264,535 hosts. We have granted a total of 5,422,290,917 credits, which means our volunteers contributed roughly 159,398,584 Hours (18,196 years!) of computation. Back in Jan we made all of the result data public and we will keep that interface active. Thank you to everyone that made Docking@home a success over the years. It’s been fun! Please join us on the forums to share your best and worst story from the project.

Over the past few months we’ve been working on bringing the ExSciTecH project to life. We hope that you will join us in our adventure on this new project. Feel free to stop by the ExSciTecH forums and say “Hi”!.

Thanks for your support over the years!

GPUGrid: New CPU work units: 3HHM-1/ZINC

Hi gang,

The testing for the CPU application is over and these are the first production WUs.

In this project we are studying the PI3Kalpha, a mutation of which is implicated in tumor formation. You can read more about it, and see the structure, here: http://www.rcsb.org/pdb/explore.do?structureId=3HHM

Over the course of this project we will be testing some 22 million commercially-available drug-like molecules, drawn from the ZINC database http://zinc.docking.org/, to find compounds which are predicted to bind strongly to the protein in a way which will inhibit its function.

Once we have screen the whole database, we will take the best hits and test them for efficacy in a series of in vitro experiments. Hopefully we will find inhibitory compounds which can then serve as the basis for future drug development.

We have passed 9 Billion It took the team 84 days to hit 9B thus beating the previous 99 days it took to hit 8B on Jan 8th.

Way to go team.

Keep up the good work, every little bit helps those projects and humanity. That’s what it is all about.
