18 Dec 2015 – The Clean Energy Project changes with the seasons
Fall brings a new team leader and a new type of simulation to run. In addition, the team has started working with partners to synthesize promising compounds. The overall goal remains constant, however: to identify materials that can generate clean, renewable energy.

15 Dec 2015 – Working to detect lung and ovarian cancers before they start
Recent stages of the Mapping Cancer Markers (MCM) project have illuminated the protein-protein interactions and biological pathways involved in lung cancer, and have also suggested surprising results about its biomarkers. Once this current stage is complete, MCM will transition to analyzing ovarian cancer. Thanks to your help, we are making discoveries and helping the international research community. Dr. Jurisica, in particular, is one of the most frequently cited researchers worldwide.

08 Dec 2015 – Book chapter: World Community Grid will contribute to the future of HIV research
We've been invited to write a chapter for an upcoming book: The Future of HIV-1 Therapeutics. Our chapter focuses on structure-based drug design, and discusses the benefits of "in silico" modeling for dramatically expanding the scope and effectiveness of structure-based research. We pay particular attention to the benefits of the large-scale computation network that we found in World Community Grid.

16 Nov 2015 – New research phase will attack more types of childhood cancer
Phase 2 of Help Fight Childhood Cancer will expand on the breakthrough discoveries from Phase 1. New collaborators, new disease targets and new therapy options will mean new hope for even more pediatric patients afflicted with cancer.

11 Nov 2015 – A decade of progress is just the beginning in our fight against AIDS
In this extensive update, the FightAIDS@Home team leader, Prof. Art Olson, recaps nearly a decade of progress in the fight against AIDS: new computational methods, new understanding of key HIV proteins, and huge volumes of computational results that have only begun to be explored. Though Phase 1 is winding down, Phase 2 of this enormous project will continue to advance vital research into the world's deadliest virus.

15 Oct 2015 – The Clean Energy Project team explains: What is high-throughput virtual screening?
The Clean Energy Project team has just published some thoughts about the philosophy, practicalities and potential of high-throughput virtual screening. Because computers and software continue to evolve rapidly, other researchers who are interested in high-throughput screening should consider these general guidelines, rather than trying to meet specific technical parameters.

14 Oct 2015 – Analyzing a wealth of data about the natural world
The Uncovering Genome Mysteries project has already amassed data on over 200 million proteins, with the goal of understanding the common features of life everywhere on earth. There are tens of millions of calculations still to run, but the team is also making preparations for analysis and eventual publication of the data.

14 Oct 2015 – Next-Level Screening: Predicting Material Properties
A new paper from the Clean Energy Project team reveals that they can now use multi-layer artificial neural networks to predict the electrical properties of novel molecules without actually simulating the entire molecule. This advance was made possible by the enormous number of simulations done for the Clean Energy Project, and promises to enable screening of many more molecules than the team was able to address in their previous work.
