Thanks to the help of all CAS@home volunteers, The SCThread project from ICT,CAS has made great progress in the past one year.

1. Their team has published a paper on BMC Structural Biology:
( Research Incorporating Ab Initio energy into threading approaches for protein structure prediction : Mingfu Shao, Sheng Wang, Chao Wang, Xiongying Yuan, Shuai Cheng Li, Weimou Zheng, Dongbo Bu BMC Bioinformatics 2011, 12(Suppl 1):S54)

2. They are working on the next generation of SCThread which is called ThreeThreade, and will be put online in the coming December.

3. They are also working on another project called PEARL which relies on the voluteer computing resources(mainly your mobile), please check details about this project at

Thanks again for your help!!
Go CAS@home! We help scientists to race against time!
