Is there any update on the availability of Covid-19 related WUs?

I'm sure that when those WU become available that Toni will post in the News forum and put a note on the front page.

Maybe they already are. This simulation used ACEMD:

That's Acellera ACEMD but probably not GPUGrid related. It shows that ACEMD can be used to help find solutions for SARS-CoV-2.

I'm all in favor of helping acelera.

But it begs the question, what are we doing here???

Best I can tell we're running a stress test.

Acellera has been doing some simulations on COVID19 using their cluster. At Acellera there are drug design people, so it is better for them to do it.

The simulations that we are currently running in GPUGRID are going to be used to help protein folding, including proteins coming from the virus giving COVID19. As you know this effort started before the outbreak and would last for several more months.

As soon as we are able to apply the current GPUGRID database simulations to perform studies related to COVID19 we will let you know the outcome.

In summary, if you are running GPUGRID now, you are contributing to a longer term project that has implications for COVID19 but it is not just specific to it.

I am perfectly happy with that. There are plenty of projects on COVID-19, maybe too many are jumping on a bandwagon.
Long-term projects will help catch the next virus. We will need that.

I think WCG is taking a long-term view too. There is not much they can do immediately, but have an effort on finding cures for multiple viruses.

Carry on.

Sounds very interesting. Look forward to hearing more details when you're not as busy as a one-armed paperhanger.

For those of you running Rosetta@home as a complementary CPU BOINC project involved in Covid-19 research, this update might be of your interest:

World Community Grid has also a Covid19 project:

https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/research/opn1/overview.do

It has both CPU and GPU tasks.

They have more crunchers than they need, and a lot of people waste a lot of GPU time trying to get work. It would be better to use the GPUs on Folding (or here when there is work).

As for CPUs, you can get plenty of work with an updated target, based on recent X-ray crystallography, from SiDock.
