DescriptionThis group is dedicated to those who participate in the BOINC program on California's Central Coast. If you live/have lived anywhere on the coast, feel free to join! The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) is a platform for 50+ different projects that use idle computer power for scientific research. To contribute, install the BOINC client available at and when prompted enter the URL for a project of your choosing. Popular projects include: 1. Rosetta@home ( predicts how proteins will fold and interact with each other and drugs; helps find better methods to fight cancer, AIDS, Alzheimer's, malaria and other diseases. 2. Einstein@home ( looks for signs of gravitational waves and pulsars. 3. ( simulates likely climates between now and 2100, projects possible effects of global warming patterns. Collaborates with the BBC Climate Change project ( 4. World Community Grid ( investigates protein-protein interactions relevant to muscular dystrophy; compares and notes outdated information from a disparate array of online genomic and proteomic databases; analyzes tissue microarrays to identify types and stages of cancers present in patients; also researches AIDS, Smallpox and the Human Proteome Folding Phase 2 projects. 5. SETI@home ( looks for signs of extra-terrestrial intelligence. BOINC emerged from SETI@home. Statistics for BOINC projects and your contributions: GridRepublic ( and BOINC Account Manager (BAM!, are two useful tools for managing and creating accounts on different BOINC projects. - Folding@home ( offers similar distributed computing for protein folding simulations using Rosetta software, but is administratively separate from BOINC. Other BOINC related groups on Facebook include: BOINC - Donate unused computer power to science!: BOINC Researchers: Einstein@home: World Community Grid:
