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.

06 Oct 2015 – Finding new avenues to attack Ebola
Efforts to simulate matches between candidate compounds and one key Ebola virus protein are largely complete. Simulations of matches against another, newly discovered target protein are beginning now. Even as simulation work continues, the team is beginning to analyze these results and home in on compounds that could form the basis for effective new drugs against Ebola and other related diseases. Thanks to your help, and a new grant, the work is proceeding well.

30 Sep 2015 – Pioneering new techniques in the fight against HIV
The team behind FightAIDS@Home is launching Phase 2 of the project, putting to use a more accurate simulation tool to help them determine which of the Phase 1 results merit further investigation. Phase 2 will also be applying this analysis technique at an unprecedented scale, which if proven successful, can benefit medical research not only for HIV but many other diseases as well.

28 Aug 2015 – Analyzing crystals to help fight cancer
Behind-the-scenes work continues on the Help Conquer Cancer project - the team is analyzing millions of protein crystallization images processed by World Community Grid volunteers, with the hope of finding patterns that will help researchers build better cancer screening tools.

19 Aug 2015 –  One step closer to identifying lung cancer biomarkers
Although work continues, enough data has already been processed to let the Mapping Cancer Markers team begin identifying high-scoring signatures and associating them with particular lung cancer biomarkers. The ultimate goal is to find signatures that distinguish many types of cancer, giving physicians and researchers another tool to improve detection, treatment and patient outcomes.
