The application period for the 10th Google Summer of Code (GSOC2014) campaign is on! GSOC is an annual coding camapign, in which Google awards stipends (of US$5,500) to selected students who work on free and open-source software projects for certain organizations during the summer. Last year, 177 open source projects and organizations took part and mentored 1,192 students and their projects. GSOC is open for students aged 18 and older, the diverse projects range from software development for Wikipedia and Linux operating systems, to mobile platforms, to firmware and also academic work on basic algorithms, and people can mentor emerging developers during their three months of work and provide support and personal help. (some background information on Wikipedia) On a private remark about GSOC 2013, AerospaceResearch.net was lucky to have been selected as an organization and mentoring three students. This was an "awesome and motivating" experience an we advice projects and students alike to visit GSOC 2014 website and apply! Deadline is 14. February 2014 for organizations, mentor and student applications will be open afterwards! And shall we also try it again? Leave your opinion in the comment segment below!

Thanks to all the generous contribution from our volunteers, TreeThreader has finished its first computing campaign of 50K protein sequences. Very important scientific conclusion has been drawn from the results and a new paper is in the process of writing. Official results will be published later on CAS@home news.A new campaign of TreeThreader will be launched soon with a task of 80K sequences to be predicted! 感谢各位志愿者的热心帮助,TreeThreader已经成功完成了第一批的计算任务,成功破解了5万条新蛋白质序列的结构。基于这些计算结果,生物学家在利用海藻提炼石油的研究方面已经得出重要的科学结论,目前正在撰写相关论文。CAS@home后续会继续公布正式的科学结论。TreeThreader后续将有更大的计算任务(约8万条蛋白质序列),目前计算任务正在部署中。

The donation page is now working again. Several users contacted me, saying that the donation page was hanging up the initial page. The group in charge of the donation system fixed the problem in under 2 hours - wow! In any case, the donation page is live again (and you can get the fancy special contribution badge if you do...)
