New World Community Grid project: Say No to Schistosoma

The mission of the Say No to Schistosoma project is to identify potential drug candidates that could possibly be developed into treatments for schistosomiasis. The extensive computing power of World Community Grid will be used to perform computer simulations of the interactions between millions of chemical compounds and certain target proteins. This will help find the most promising compounds that may lead to effective treatments for the disease.

Schistosomiasis is a tropical disease caused by parasitic worms that are transmitted by freshwater snails. The disease kills 200,000 people each year and affects over 207 million people. Schistosomiasis is second only to malaria in its socioeconomic devastation. Researchers at the Infórium University in Belo Horizonte and FIOCRUZ-Minas, Brazil, are using World Community Grid to search for chemical compounds which may lead to new drugs for treating the disease.

A software program called VINA from The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California, will be used to perform the virtual chemistry experiments. These virtual experiments will search to find which of millions of drug compounds might be able to disable particular proteins essential for the parasite's survival. Screening for the best potential drug compounds is an early step in the process of developing effective treatments for the disease. With enough computing power, this screening can be done much more quickly than using conventional laboratory experiments. Existing computers available to the researchers would require approximately 30 years to perform the screening. However, it is estimated that the power of World Community Grid can reduce the time required to one year or less. Information about the best candidate compounds will be published by the scientists, and this information will be available in the public domain for other scientists to build upon with their research. Further laboratory work using the best candidates identified by this project could lead to the development of better drugs to fight schistosomiasis. 

Project Status and Findings:  
Information about this project is provided on the web pages below and by the project scientists on the Say No to Schistosoma website. If you have comments or questions about this project, please visit the Say No to Schistosoma forum.

Referral Race 2012

Hi team.

We're having a great start for the year 2012 and i want to boost it with small referral race.

Referral race is simple.

1. Crunch in our Boinc team and get at least one friend to join our Boinc team.
2. Soon as your friend is crunching regular(10 000 boinc points from cpu project and 100 000 boinc points from gpu project untill 29/02/2012) Ask your friend to email your nick and project to Akiles@windowslive.com and i will add one ticket from each friend to prize drawal. More friends to join, more tickets and better chances to win.
3. Main prize is NEW Battlefield 3 game download ticket and winner will be announced 29/02/2012.

Everyone can join and chance to win is good. I will add small prizes in the mix if i will receive more.

If you have any questions, please email Akiles@windowslive.com

Thank you
Team Captain

Milkyway@home : Milkyway@Home uses the BOINC platform to harness volunteered computing resources, creating a highly accurate three dimensional model of the Milky Way galaxy using data gathered by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. Cpu and AMD Gpus(AMD 4830 or better,5830 or better, 6950 or better)

World Community Grid : World Community Grid brings people together from across the globe to create the largest non-profit computing grid benefiting humanity. It does this by pooling surplus computer processing power. We believe that innovation combined with visionary scientific research and large-scale volunteerism can help make the planet smarter. Our success depends on like-minded individuals - like you. Projects: GO Fight Against Malaria, Drug Search for Leishmaniasis, Computing for Clean Water, The Clean Energy Project - Phase 2, Help Cure Muscular Dystrophy - Phase2, Help Fight Childhood Cancer, Help Conquer Cancer, FightAIDS@Home, Discovering Dengue Drugs - Together - Phase 2

MalariaControl.net :

What is malariacontrol.net?

The malariacontrol.net project is an application that makes use of network computing for stochastic modelling of the clinical epidemiology and natural history of Plasmodium falciparum malaria.

Simulation modeling of malaria

The fight against malaria was given a new impetus by the call for eradication at the Gates Malaria Forum in October 2007, making more but still limited resources available for research, development, and combating malaria. To inform decisions on which new or existing tools to prioritize, we have developed a general platform for comparing, fitting, and evaluating stochastic simulation models of Plasmodium falciparum malaria, programmed in C++ (openmalaria).

We use this to inform the target product profiles for novel interventions like vaccines, addressing questions such as minimal efficacy and duration of effects needed for a vaccine to be worthwhile, and also to optimize deployment of established interventions and integrated strategies. Field trials of interventions consider effects over 1-2 years at most, but the dynamics of immunity and human demography also lead to longer term effects. We consider many different outcomes, including transmission reduction or interruption, illness, hospitalization, or death, as well as economic aspects.

GPUGRID.net is a distributed computing infrastructure devoted to biomedical research. Thanks to the contribution of volunteers, GPUGRID scientists can perform molecular simulations to understand the function of proteins in health and disease. Projects: Cancer : Unveiling mechanisms of drug resistance and malfunctions in cell signalling pathways in Cancer. Hiv/Aids : Modelling the process of how HIV maturation first starts by simulating the activation of one of its key proteins: the protease. Neural disorders : Investigating features of neurologically important proteins that have thus far evaded traditional experimental techniques. Nvidia Gpus
