29 Apr 2013 – Nutritious Rice for the World project update
The Nutritious Rice for the World project has been post-processing their rice protein structure prediction data computed via World Community Grid. In the process of benchmarking and validating their post-processing technique, they believe they have come up with a better method that will improve the accuracy of the final predictions. This new method will be detailed in a new paper and software update, which will be released to the general protein folding community.
