15 Dec 2014 – New imaging tools accelerate cancer research
The Help Defeat Cancer research team at the Ontario Cancer Institute continues to analyze the millions of protein-crystallization images processed by World Community Grid volunteers, by building new classifiers based on a combination of Grid-processed image features, and deep features learned directly from image pixels. Improvements in image classification, along with new data provided by our collaborators increase possibilities for discovering useful and interesting patterns in protein crystallization.

12 Nov 2014 – A new lead in the fight against dengue fever
The Discovering Dengue Drugs research team has published a paper describing a new drug candidate that was discovered with the help of World Community Grid volunteers. This drug candidate has no known adverse risks, and seems to be an attractive candidate for preclinical studies. A new antiviral treatment would be hugely beneficial for the roughly half of the world’s population that is at risk of contracting dengue or other related viruses such as hepatitis C, yellow fever and West Nile.
