Message 90915 - Posted: 16 Jul 2019, 22:18:18 UTC



As you may have heard, the Institute for Protein Design was recently selected as part of The Audacious Project. This large-scale philanthropic collaboration, which is the successor to the TED Prize, surfaces and funds projects with the potential to change the world.

As a result, we are expanding our Seattle-based team of scientists and engineers who will work together to advance Rosetta, our software for protein design and structure prediction. The funding will also allow us to invest in the equipment, supplies and lab space needed to design and test millions of synthetic proteins.

What challenges will we be tackling? Watch my TED talk to find out.

All of this work — like everything we do — will depend on you, the participants in Rosetta@home. Whether it’s creating custom nanomaterials or safer cancer therapies, we rely on the Rosetta@home distributed computing platform. We cannot thank you enough for taking the time to be a part of this exciting research, and we hope you tell at least one friend that they too can play a role in the protein design revolution just by running Rosetta@home.

Thank you,

David Baker
Director, Institute for Protein Design

There is motivation, and then there is motivation. That is good enough for me. Thanks.

This is very good news.
The scientific community should appreciate the very large favorable prospects for such discoveries, since they can change the planet, as well as changed and created, the Internet, or gps navigation. I spoke with scientists about solving all the problems, and the solution lies in the complete safe and free control of the protein - rna - dna. Recent scientific discoveries show that there are radio-controlled enzymes, with their help we can create a radio-controlled, controlled ribosome, or radio-controlled proteins. It will be the most common wireless cell management interface, if implemented. And it will bring the planet to a new level of well-being and prosperity, allowing it to produce industrial raw materials and safe food in unlimited quantities.
I really believe that deep learning and artificial intelligence will accelerate scientific discoveries and incredible achievements.

Great news. Can we expect GPU app in the future with increased funding?

Oh, no, please.
Not another thread about Gpu.
Admins are NOT interested in gpgpu.

Their official answer to this question at Rosettacommons.org: We've looked at GPU accelleration for Rosetta in the past, and the conclusion by the people who were playing around with it was that - given how Rosetta does things - there isn't much benefit for GPU acceleration for most of the normal Rosetta protocols. As such, most of Rosetta does not take advantage of the GPU. That said, there are a few sub-protocols which have the facility for GPU accelleration, but unfortunately to enable this you need a special compilation, so most people don't bother.

This message is 2ys old and "in the past" means...1y before? 2ys? 5ys?? We don't know.
Maybe now the computational is more powerful (hw+sw) than 7 years ago, at the moment of the test.
But, we don't care.
We care cpu optimizations.
