As many of you know, I’ve been using my computer to crunch molecules with Oxford for the last two years on The Grid. The project there has concluded. The good news is there are many more projects we can put our computer resources to work on and several of them can be found at the World Community Grid such as:

  Help Cure Muscular Dystrophy Project
Genome Comparison Project
Help Defeat Cancer Project
Human Proteome Folding – Phase 2 Project
FightAIDS@Home Project
How Grid Computing Works

If you believe in putting your spare cpu cycles to good use, please consider joining team Bravo on the WCG. We started Bravo today. Autumn was the first to join. Any and all are welcome to work with us and many, many more around the world in doing what we can to support research. The project works with either PCs or Macs, so all my Apple friends, you’ve got no reason not to join us now.

To get started requires just two steps and less than five minutes of your time. Download the agent and then join team Bravo. That’s it. Your computer will do everything else just like a screensaver, which is to say, it only processes data when you are not. I’ve been crunching molecules with more than 10 computers with a total cpu time that exceeds 20 years and I’ve had zero problems running the program on my desktops and laptops. Please consider joining us in a cause that will cost you no time and no money but with the promise of making a difference in the lives of your children (and maybe even us) with the research we support today.
