Message 92002 - Posted: 15 Mar 2020, 21:50:22 UTC - in response to Message 92000.  

Hi

I come from Denmark, I would also like to contribute to a faster research on the Corona virus, so we can develop a vaccine so that people are not lost to this viral virus, I myself am disabled with, among other things, impaired lung function.

So I am sorry that it is important to help in clearing this disease, but I have doubts that I have chosen the right project, so I hope you will answer my question?

Thank you in advance for your help...

Sincerely
Henrik Larsen

To my knowledge this is the only project contributing to research for COVID-19/coronavirus.
I have a question also would somebody be able to post the name of a task that is contributing to the virus so that I know what to look for.
I have processed a number of tasks but I am yet to see one on my task list. This could very easily be because there is none to work on at the moment. Thanks for any assistance
Have a crunching good day!!

It seems that currently the only BOINC project at least partially involved with the virus research is this one then.
And it does not allows one to specifically pick up COVID related workunits.
I think the only option is just crunching it as a whole, but as much as possible.
Hopefully some parts of the workunits would be the viral proteins.

Thank you for mentioning this by the way. I'm going to set up every electronic I have, both clients.

Oh great. F@H even looks like supporting GPU and ARM.

Don't request tasks for NVIDIA GPU
Project has no apps for NVIDIA GPU

Is this CPU only?


Yeah, I ran into this too and banged my head against a wall too long until I figured out. why Rosetta wasn't using my GPUs..

However, since F@H appears to support GPU folding for their COVID efforts, I run BOINC on my CPUs for Rosetta@Home, and F@H on only a GPU slot for their folding projects so they don't interfere with each other. However, F@H is so overwhelmed with new volunteers right now, they're frequently running out of Work Units, or otherwise have some server-side delays in getting enough work out to the idle GPU workers (at least from what I understand from their posts).

That's very cool, indeed!
I have a NVIDIA Jetson Nano idling around. It's an ARM device with quad core CPU, 128-core GPU and 4GB RAM.

Is there any chance to get this running for crunching some covid-19 related problems?

Would be great to help.

Please everybody spread the word about BOINC and COVID-19. It is every media you can, we really need more people computting and in this case is a matter of time!!

Hi,

Also Foldit is doing Corona research. Foldit is from the same institute that runs Rosetta@home.

Thanks. I was wondering whether WCG might get into it. They don't necessarily have the fast-response capabilities that the others do, but they have their own strengths.
It will be a long fight, with probably many rounds.

World Community Grid did not release this paper--or any paper--about future plans regarding COVID-19. The paper referenced in the post above was written by scientists who used World Community Grid for a different project. It does not reference any of World Community Grid's future plans.

Just joined also. Glad to see this catching on. I was bummed when seti@home announced the end.... now I've got a new home, good cause :)

Maybe i'm wrong about sense of this paper, but this news seems to involve past researchers on Covid

Reassurance

For those looking for even more reassurance (like I was) that volunteering to R@h is still relevant to the fight against COVID-19:

R@h tweeted just 29 minutes ago (as of writing):

Our scientists could use YOUR help in the fight against #coronavirus.

Best part: it's as easy as running a screensaver.

Seriously.

Visit boinc.bakerlab.org to learn more & get started


Another tweet from two days ago, this time from Institute for Protein Design:

During this difficult time we are prioritizing our COVID-19 research (antiviral, vaccines, diagnostics) while enforcing social distancing. […] To help: boinc.bakerlab.org

#WeGotThisSeattle


Lastly, this (brilliant) tweet from three days ago, by team behind University of Washington’s protein folding game Foldit:

Help researchers fight #COVID19 by donating spare time on your computer. If 💻's asleep, it can be working!

Step 1: Download BOINC […]

Step 2: Select the Rosetta@Home project (@rosettaathome) from inside BOINC app 🦠🧬

That's it!

When your 💻's awake, play Foldit :)

Download: fold.it


***
No GPU processing?

I was also wondering why Rosetta@home does not take advantage of GPUs, and found this previous answer from project administrator Mod.Sense:

There are 150 developers in 23 universities and laboratories working on various aspects of the coding (Rosetta Commons). So, the idea has been considered from many many perspectives. […] Some serious efforts have been made to utilize GPUs.

Noone is dismissing the value of GPU to computing. And with more and more on-chip memory their versatility improves. But even those making and selling GPUs do not attempt to argue that computing is all just ones and zeros, and therefore GPUs should be used for everything. They have a specific subset of compute tasks that they do very very well... such as graphics. But the \"GP\" does not stand for \"General Purpose\".

In past posts I have likened the comparison between CPU and GPU as being similar to the difference between a school bus and a race car. The race car\'s acceleration and top speed are certainly superior, but that doesn\'t mean it can be used effectively to bring all of the children to school if that is the task at-hand.

Guys i am no computer gig and too old to understand the language BUT i have one great asset. I can promote things in general as by teaching experience i have to elementarize everything including tedious things like addtion division e.t.c. Do yoy need cpus or it starts to be full the whole project? If thats the case allow me to promote it in certain communities (fb).

Reported on the BOINC message boards: new users are trying to join Rosetta to help you with the work on the coronavirus. But their attempts to create an account get

Can't create login "Captcha Failed"
This became a problem at other BOINC projects last month, and a patch was developed: "fix ReCaptcha problem" #3461. That might be worth applying here.

That would explain why we are still able to get work. Folding has been overloaded with new users.

I also had this issue. Signing up directly through the BOINC Manager worked fine though since it doesn't require a captcha.

The Review you linked was indeed written by some of the OpenZika Researchers but it has nothing to do with WCG.
