On 9 May 2016, 13:07:05 UTC, PrimeGrid’s PPS Mega Prime Search project found the Mega Prime: 303*2^3391977+1 The prime is 1,021,090 digits long and enters Chris Caldwell's The Largest Known Primes Database ranked 154th overall. The discovery was made by Andreas Mueller (Andreas) of Germany using an Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU G2130 @ 3.20GHz with 8GB RAM, running Microsoft Windows 7 Enterprise. This computer took about 2 hours 28 minutes to complete the primality test using LLR. The prime was verified on 12 May 2016, 16:24:32 UTC, by Stephane Guichard (stef71000) of France using an Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00GHz with 16GB RAM, running Microsoft Windows 10 Professional. This computer took about 2 hours 31 minutes to complete the primality test using LLR. Stephane is a member of the L'Alliance Francophone team. For more details, please see the official announcement.

The Zika virus was relatively unknown until 2015, when it made headlines due its rapid spread and its link to severe brain-related deficiencies in newborns born to mothers who contracted the virus while pregnant. Dr. Carolina Horta Andrade, the principal investigator for the new OpenZika project, discusses how she and an international team of researchers are using World Community Grid to accelerate the search for an effective anti-Zika treatment.

Recognition for gravitational waves discovery

mardi 17 mai 2016 21:02

I have a pleasure to inform you, unless you already know, that prof. Krzysztof Belczyński,
the PI of Universe@Home project, in recognition for his involvement in discovery of gravitational
waves, was awarded recently with the Medal of Nicolas Copernicus and the Breakthrough Prize.

The former is the most prestigious prize awarded by the Polish Academy of Sciences. The latter is an
international award bestowed for remarkable scientific outcome. It was awarded for the whole group,
which took part in the research.

The results from the Universe@Home project are still used to increase our understanding of
gravitational waves and their role in the Universe.


Mam przyjemność poinformować Was, choć możliwe, że już wiecie, że prof. Krzysztof Belczyński,
kierownik projektu Universe@Home, w uznaniu swoich zasług w odkryciu fal grawitacyjnych, został
nagrodzony Medalem im. Mikołaja Kopernika i Breakthrough Prize.

Pierwsza nagroda jest najbardziej prestiżą przyznawaną przez Polską Akademię Nauk. Druga
natomiast to międzynarodowa nagroda przyznawana za znaczące odkrycia naukowe. Została ona
przyznana całej grupie biorącej udział w badaniach.

Wyniki otrzymywane w ramach projektu Universe@Home są ciągle używane do poszerzania naszej
wiedzy na temat fal grawitacyjnych i ich roli we Wszechświecie.

We've come out with a breakthrough paper in Science titled 'De novo design of protein homo-oligomers with modular hydrogen-bond network-mediated specificity'. This is an exciting and significant breakthrough for de novo protein design. A particular challenge for current protein design methods has been the accurate design of polar binding sites or polar binding interfaces, both of which require hydrogen bonding interactions. Hydrogen bond networks are governed by complex physics and energetic coupling, that until now, could not be computed within the scope of design. The computational method described in this paper, HBNet, now provides a general method to accurately design in hydrogen bond networks. This new capacity should be useful in the design of new enzymes, proteins that bind small molecules, and polar protein interfaces. Thanks Rosetta@home community for your participation and help!

Thanks everyone for participating in the Planck contest! Today we picked the winners, big thanks to the top users MaDdCow, 25000ghz, and Rally1965, and the top team BOINC.Italy, who we will mention in our paper. You, along with the ~2500 other users and ~300 other teams contributed a ton of computing power to allow us to do this analysis over the last several months.
