cas@home project status
The main application running on CAS@home is the TreeThreader which predicts protein structure. After finishing a big campaign in Oct 2015, there have been sporadic TreeThreader jobs running on CAS@home which is around 200 sequences to predict every month. Currently, the TreeThreader application provides a public service FALCON to allow worldwide biologists submitting their protein sequences for structure prediction, and CAS@home is the backend computing platform for this public service. This service has just been open to the public, and it expects more biologists to use it in the near future with a recent publication. Apart from the jobs from FALCON, there will also be another campaign of TreeThreader between Feb and May 2016 to prepare for the CASP event . As usual, CAS@home appreciates all the support from its volunteers! 1 Feb 2016, 9:15:54 UTC · Comment

LHC@home Test4Theory passed 2 Trillion events
The Test4Theory application of LHC@home just announced that they have reached the total of 2 Trillion events simulated since 2011 by volunteers for the CERN PH-TH project MCPlots.

CAS@home computing schedule
Thanks to all the generous contribution from our volunteers, TreeThreader has finished its first computing campaign of 50K protein sequences. Very important scientific conclusion has been drawn from the results and a new paper is in the process of writing. Official results will be published later on CAS@home news.A new campaign of TreeThreader will be launched soon with a task of 80K sequences to be predicted!

TreeThreader Job Submission Error
Due to network problems between ICT and IHEP, the TreeThreader job submission service keeps failing. In order to diagnose this problem, the job submission service will be stopped, hence no jobs will be generated during this period. We will send notifications once the service is back! Sorry for the inconvenience!

ICT has started to slowly submit jobs from last week to test the stability! (28th Aug, 2013)

由于网络故障问题,TreeThreader 的作业提交系统不断出现失败,为了诊断故障,我们决定暂时中止TreeThreader的作业提交服务,因此这段时间内CAS@home上将没有可领取的作业。我们会在解决问题后,及时通知!带来不便,敬请谅解!
