Cure – Create – Discover

Biomedical and Computational Biology Projects

World Community Grid

World Community Grid has completed dozens of projects and continues to work on many more. From climate science, to medical research, to cancer and HIV/AIDs discovery... WCG does it all. It is a great first project to introduce you to BOINC.

WCG is currently running a Stop Childhood Cancer project, a Mapping Cancer Markers project, a Stop Tuberculosis project, a Microbiome project, and an Open Pandemics project.

GPUGrid

A computer can simulate millions of molecular and chemical interactions in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost when compared to analogue modes of science -- seventy million possibilities can be reduced to seventy in a few months. Those seventy, instead of seventy million, can then be tested in a lab to determine the best route to a cure. GPUGrid.Net works to understand and cure disease with a focus on cancer, HIV/AIDS, and neural disorders.

RNAWorld

*REQUIRES VBOX*
RNA is critical to functioning DNA. The more scientists understand RNA, the more they understand about DNA and the way the human body functions. What better way to understand something than to build it a billion times? RNA World focuses on identifying, predicting, and building RNA.

Rosetta@Home

Proteins are the building blocks to life. Understanding proteins means understanding life. Proteins can be designed to aide in medicine, material production, energy production, data storage, and who knows what else! Rosetta@Home works to fold and design proteins for use in an array of fields and industries.

TN-Grid

The Human Genome project told us that there are an estimated 30,000 genes in the human genome. What it didn't tell us is how each gene is related; how changes to one gene might affect another. TN-Grid explores the relationships among genes by expanding gene-regulatory networks.

Ibercivis

A computer can simulate millions of molecular and chemical interactions in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost when compared to analogue modes of science -- seventy million possibilities can be reduced to seventy in a few months. Those seventy, instead of seventy million, can then be tested in a lab to determine the best route to a cure. Ibercivis works to understand and cure disease with a focus on ebola, HIV/AIDS, influenza and hepatitis B.
