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 maintenance period
IHEP Computer Center enters the annual maintenance period starting from 25th July, and finishes at 30th July. The CAS@home server will be shutdown during this period!

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!
感谢各位志愿者的热心帮助，TreeThreader已经成功完成了第一批的计算任务，成功破解了5万条新蛋白质序列的结构。基于这些计算结果，生物学家在利用海藻提炼石油的研究方面已经得出重要的科学结论，目前正在撰写相关论文。CAS@home后续会继续公布正式的科学结论。TreeThreader后续将有更大的计算任务（约8万条蛋白质序列），目前计算任务正在部署中。 12 Feb 2014, 3:04:44 UTC · Comment
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)
计算所的前端作业服务器开始小规模地提交作业，测试系统的稳定性，一切还在恢复过程中！（2013-08-28） 26 Jul 2013, 3:48:00 UTC · Comment
