05 Jun 2015 – Post grid calculations continue to yield progress and inspire new methods against deadly diseases
The GO Fight Against Malaria project team has been making good use of the calculations which were conducted by our volunteers and that concluded in summer 2013. Their findings have sparked progress against not only malaria, but tuberculosis as well. They have one paper published and two more about to be submitted. They continue their work to publish their findings, after which they will resume the analysis on and experimental assessment of the massive amount of data generated by World Community Grid volunteers.
