I was always wondering, since I am quite new here with pretty old hardware :) what my WUs are actually computing. Having read the posts on the news sub-forum about the summary of the MDAD effort and the successive launch of another large-scale experiment, as well as the recent flow of new WUs, I am kind of wondering if there is any way to know what one is computing before any paper is announced here. Sure, the results of the experiments run here is not known a priori but I would be highly interested in what the current run is all about, in the sense of it targeting either one of brain/cancer/method/HIV research, being mentioned on the science page.

As all WUs currently are named ..._TONI_MDAD..._... to the best of my knowledge, so I am just curious what is hiding behind it. Any way to announce the corresponding research field of the current run on the news forum?

Any pointers very much appreciated!

Thank you very much for your response! Just finished up reading on this thread and must say it is very informational even though a lot of information was hidden between the lines.

Just for the sake of simplifying others the search effort for the answer pls allow me to restate the gist here again from the information you pointed me too.

According to Toni the „MDAD workunits that are an ambitious effort to map the protein conformational space. Although the scope of the work is general, we expect that virion proteins will be among the very first test cases.“

Other information relating to more recently run batches can be found through the links rod4x4 provided in the prior post. Your answer is much appreciated!
