We want you to be among the first to hear about this exciting opportunity to accelerate your contribution.

Starting today, you can download the BOINC app for Android to run World Community Grid on your mobile device.

And don't worry, it won't kill your battery or use up your data quota: by default, the Android app will run only when your device is plugged in, and will only transmit data when your device is connected to a WiFi network.


For more information, read our News & Update article.

Sincerely,

The World Community Grid Team

Listen to the research team discuss the recently completed Help Conquer Cancer project and hear how the results are being used: Wednesday, May 29, 2013 at 12:00pm ET / 16:00 UTC

Since November 2007, World Community Grid volunteers for the Help Conquer Cancer project have been running calculations on millions of images to help researchers at the Ontario Cancer Institute of the University of Toronto improve automated protein crystallography techniques. These techniques enable researchers to identify and determine the structure and function of important cancer-related proteins.

Summary
We are excited to announce the release of GPU processing capability for the Help Conquer Cancer project!

This capability allows our members to contribute using their machines' graphics cards, thus giving our community of volunteers another avenue to advance the Help Conquer Cancer research project.

Earlier this year, the Help Conquer Cancer researchers published a paper explaining the reimplementation of their algorithms to take advantage of high-performing GPU hardware. You may review an abstract of the paper and access it here

In addition, you may learn more about GPU processing by reviewing WCG FAQ's FAQs and by visiting our GPU Forum.

Help Conquer Cancer

Summary
The Help Conquer Cancer (HCC) project researchers have published a paper describing their efforts in re-implementing their algorithms to take advantage of Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) hardware present in many of today's computer's. If the algorithms lend themselves to use a GPU implementation, this can dramatically increase their performance.

Two ‘wonder’ drugs significantly increase the chances of surviving advanced melanoma – the most dangerous and aggressive form of skin cancer, it was revealed today.

It is the biggest breakthrough in the fight against the disease for more than 30 years, say doctors, with patients getting extra months and sometimes years of life.

Trials show the drugs ipilimumab and vemurafenib both prolong survival.

But the best results suggest that, using ipilimumab, the number of patients alive three years after diagnosis is almost twice that of those receiving standard treatment.

Scientists are rearranging the genetic information of certain dogs to make the coding human-like as a way to learn more about the genetic causes in people of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a cancer that begins in the cells of the immune system.

Humans and dogs have a similar genetic makeup and share the same types of cancers, including lymphoma.
