Rosetta@Home Project

Post by Buga1 » Tue Dec 11, 2007 1:30 am

Anything related to Rosetta@Home.

Rosetta@Home Homepage

Description:
Rosetta@home needs your help to determine the 3-dimensional shapes of proteins in research that may ultimately lead to finding cures for some major human diseases. By running the Rosetta program on your computer while you don't need it you will help us speed up and extend our research in ways we couldn't possibly attempt without your help. You will also be helping our efforts at designing new proteins to fight diseases such as HIV, Malaria, Cancer, and Alzheimer's.

Does anyone know what's going on with this program? I'm receiving technical error messages- and don't see anything on the R@H site. :smt017

Side effect of yesterdays shutdown?

Other than that I couldn't really say. I am not currently crunching at Rosetta.

I decided to attach to rosetta last night and things appear to be alright.

Our server's back up, minirosetta 1.54 is proving to be rather stable and we got 2.5M workunits lined up - come and get them while they're fresh!

Pilot's on her last rosetta unit right now. As much as it's going to hurt our RAC - it's coming time to get this project caught up to the rest of them.

Take a look at the recent work you've made possible with your contributions! D. Baker discusses the six (6!) manuscripts that the group is publishing, having used the computing power-house that is R@H, in the Rosetta@home Journal.

Our project received a large donation from an anonymous donor and following the donor's suggestion, the University of Washington created a special Rosetta@home fund which makes it easy to make a tax deductible donation directly to our project. We've added a link to more information on our homepage in the "Join Rosetta@home" navigation section. Also, for more information see David Baker's recent journal post.

We had a brief hiccup today with our filesystem which brought the project down for a few hours. The redundancy in the Polyserve file server system that handles our BOINC data failed during a routine maintenance window. No outage was expected, and it took a long time to get the multiple servers communicating again.

There also appears to be a problem accessing Rosetta through Boinc at this moment. My computers get the 'can't attach shared memory' error...

We'd like to thank everyone for the recent dramatic increase in throughput. Our sustained teraflops has been at an all time high and it couldn't have come at a better time with CASP9 in progress and exciting research developments in the lab.

08 Aug 2010:

Rosetta@home related advances have been featured in the national media twice in the last month. The first advance was the design of a protein catalyst that joins two molecules in a way not found in Nature; this was reported in Science magazine in July. The second advance is the finding that FoldIt players can solve hard structure prediction problems; this was reported in Nature magazine this week. These advances were covered in the New York Times, the LA times, and likely in your local newspaper. Thanks to all of you for your contributions to Rosetta@home!
