Tommy, Welcome to Rosetta!

I haven\'t seen any of these amyloid tasks for some time. I would assume they are working on refinements to the program, as they really are just getting started on this research method.

Dr. Baker said in his journal today that he and the team will be writing some papers on the work they did over the Summer with CASP. And, in general, you can count of the project team writing papers about all of their work, when they feel they\'ve got something to write about.

I was searching the web one day for related papers, to see if I could find any that I could understand! I found a website that may be of interest to you (many of you). It\'s called http://www.sciencemag.org. It requires a subscription to read more then the abstracts, but I think you will find by review of your search results and how they link in to related papers, that it is well worth the roughly $60 euros it costs for a student subscription.

Here\'s a link directly to my search for amyloid fibrils






Hi Feet1st! Thanks for the suggestions. Merry Christmas and good new year to everybody.

How are the results of the amyloid fibril structure prediction coming? Will some of the new revisions and corrections to the scoring algorythms improve the fibril models as well?
If having a DC project with BOINC is of interest to you, with volunteer or cloud computing resources, but have no time for the BOINC learning curve,
use a hosting service that understands BOINC projects: http://DeepSci.com

I am excited to be a part of your research I have a personal interest in your successes. My Father passed away in 1987 from complications due to amyloidosis and I proudly support your efforts. If donating my PCs\' computational capacity is a way I can help, then you have what I can give. Time to invest in a new dedicated quad-core box or two.

After reading Aubrey De Grey\'s chapter about beta amyloid fibrils in his book Ending Aging (check amazon, or google \"ted\" and \"aubrey de grey\" for a video), I can see I\'m happy to see Rosetta looking into this.

Basically, we\'ll all get Alzheimer\'s at some point if something else doesn\'t kill us first, so it\'s an important disease to cure.

Good morning, i just want to know, if rosetta search is in progress ?
Also the news of this search.
I\'m sorry for my english.
