The iThena distributed project concerns experimental mapping of network structures included in the Internet. The project is in closed beta phase. Currently, the only application available in the project (iThena CNode) performs a sequence of traceroute procedures from client computers. The resulting data is sent back to the server and submitted to the main database, where it can be further analyzed.
Currently the main supported and recommended platform is x86_64-pc-linux-gnu. After joining the project, accept the download of test/beta applications in the settings (iThena CNode is a Beta application). This can be changed by checking the appropriate box 'Run test applications?' in 'iThena preferences' in your profile after logging in.
Network structure mapping summaries will be available online.
Ibercivis has restarted and has new address and new stats.
Guess you can call it "Ibercivis 2".
It is a totally NEW project and the old stats were NOT migrated over. https://boinc.ibercivis.es/ibercivis/
[email protected] is a research project to locate seeds, features, the unknown, and the unseen in the block game, Minecraft.
Minecraft is currently the best-selling video game of all time. Although we have no affiliation with Microsoft, Mojang, or the development of Minecraft itself; this project was born out of necessity. Many members of the community have the desire to push the game, which keeps on giving, to its limits.
COVID.SI is a citizen science project to fight against SARS-CoV-2 by distributed computing.
In our project, we are looking for ligands – small molecules that can successfully bind to protein targets and modulate a specific process that is crucial for the virus biochemistry. Together we have developed software that can be easily installed on your computer to help participants help find the cure for today’s invisible enemy. Based on molecular docking, the ideal ligand should be complementary in shape and properties to the binding site of the target biomolecule. However, the complementarity of small molecules is only one prerequisite for the use of a molecule as a drug.
The search for the right molecule is best illustrated by finding a small needle in a huge haystack. It is a much more difficult problem because of the number of possible molecular structures. The amount of all possible molecular structures is also called the chemical universe – the size of this abstract space can be estimated to be 10 to the power of 80. There are many galaxies in this chemical universe, and one of the galaxies is a galaxy with potentially pharmacologically active molecules. The method for this purpose is called virtual screening. In principle, the larger the part of the chemical universe that we study, the higher the likelihood of finding a potential cure for the coronavirus.
