- Wildlife@Home: [dna] validator ready for testing
13.08.2014 22:28 Uhr
So I have the new validator ready for testing for DNA@Home. I’m just waiting on the last of the work units that got sent out on DNA@Home to return and get validated before I shut everything off over there and start the validator on citizen science grid.
Or, would people rather prefer I just shut down the daemons over at DNA@Home so we can get things working over here sooner (there are about 300 tasks still out in the wild over there that are a couple days old now)?
Unfortuantely, there’s no good way to run both at the same time.
- Einstein@Home: Gravitational Wave S6 Directed Search (CasA) ending
13.08.2014 12:41 Uhr
We are nearing the end of the “S66CasA GW run”. This means that only relatively few tasks of possibly remote frequency bands are available for this application, possibly resulting in an increased download volume per task. If you want to avoid this, you may opt-out of the “Gravitational Wave S6 Directed Search (CasA)” search in your Einstein@Home preferences on the web site.
- World Community Grid News: Database maintenance: Aug 12, 2014 @ 1500 UTC – Completed
13.08.2014 06:57 Uhr
There will be an unplanned BOINC database maintenance on Aug 12, 2014 at 1500 UTC time. [ Completed Aug 13 @ 0100 ]
- Wildlife@Home: [wildlife] moved server side daemons to Citizen Science Grid
13.08.2014 02:35 Uhr
I’ve moved the wildlife@home server side daemons over to citizen science grid. New WUs for Wildlife@home will be sent out from CSG as well, not from the wildlife@home project anymore.
This shouldn’t effect anyone watching videos for the crowd sourcing aspect of the project.
- Wildlife@Home: [dna] will be sending out test work units
13.08.2014 00:49 Uhr
It’s taken a bit of work, but I’ve gotten the work generator able to send out work units (and it looks like they’re crunching successfully at least on my end).
I’ll probably sent out a few more small batches for testing tonight, and will get working on the validator next. The validator is going to take a bit more updating, because I need to make sure it’s assigning credits correctly to the sub projects, which is going to be all custom code.
- Wildlife@Home: credit for linked projects should be showing up now
11.08.2014 19:31 Uhr
If you’ve linked to your SubsetSum and/or DNA@Home accounts via the link account page:
It should now be showing up in the forums and in your profile. Note that after doing the linking it might take a couple minutes to get into the server’s cache and show up.
- Wildlife@Home: new DNA@Home front page
11.08.2014 05:06 Uhr
As part of the project unification, I’ve update the DNA@Home webpage. Hope everyone likes it. The carousel up top is a little messed up as the images sizes aren’t great – but I’ll be getting some new cool images of the biology labs and things like that in a day or two, which should make it look better.
- Wildlife@Home: Added DNA@Home application, work units hopefully tomorrow
11.08.2014 03:38 Uhr
So I’ve added the DNA@Home application here, unfortunately it looks like I need to make a few updates to the DNA@Home validator, assimilator and work generator as they’re based off an older version of BOINC. I’m hoping I’ll be able to get that done and send out a test batch of work units tomorrow.
- Wildlife@Home: [dna,subsetsum] account linking available
10.08.2014 00:28 Uhr
I’ve created a page for linking your DNA@Home and SubsetSum@Home accounts here:
Your accounts need to have the same email address on here and the account you wish to link to. After you’ve linked accounts, any credit you generate for DNA@Home or SubsetSum@Home work units will be added to the project on those accounts. If you don’t have an account there, your account here will be used to generate credit there.
From here on out, all the work units for Wildlife@Home, SubsetSum@Home and DNA@Home will be generated using the Citizen Science Grid scheduler, so you’ll need to add it to BOINC manager: http://volunteer.cs.und.edu/csg
Let me know if you have any problems!
- SIMAP – Similarity Matrix of Proteins: New workunits for August and September
09.08.2014 18:47 Uhr
During the last week we have imported about 4 million new proteins from the databases Uniprot and RefSeq into SIMAP.
The workunits of these sequences will be available from Sun, Aug 10 . We expect about two months of continuous work for SIMAP.
Best regards and thanks a lot for crunching SIMAP,
- SETI@home: SETI.Germany Wow!-Event

- Wildlife@Home: added new forums for the other projects
08.08.2014 03:40 Uhr
I’ve made some updates to the forums, adding new ones for DNA@Home and SubsetSum@Home. I’ve also made some progress on the Citizen Science Grid home page here:
Let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions! Still under construction but at least you can get an idea of the look and feel for the new site once I get everything unified.
- MindModeling@Home (Beta): CogSci 2014!

- Wildlife@Home: more on project unification
06.08.2014 22:04 Uhr
I’ve come up with what will hopefully be a good solution to the project unification. I’ve created a new project called Citizen Science Grid, which you can take a look at here (note it’s very rough and i’m still working on a lot of the webpages to unify everything):
Since Wildlife@Home has been the most recently active project, I’m re-using the Wildlife@Home database for this project. Note that this project won’t export statistics. Instead, credit earned by this project will be exported into the various sub projects.
So this means if you run Wildlife@Home only, you don’t need to do anything. If you run any of the other projects, first make an account on Wildlife@Home (or on the Citizen Science Grid webpage) if you don’t have one already.
I’m currently working on a webpage where you’ll be able to link the account on Citizen Science Grid/Wildlife@Home to your accounts on DNA@Home or SubsetSum@Home. You’ll need to enter in your user name and email for the account you want to link it to. Then when you generate credit it will be generated for that old account.
In a week or so I’m going to shut down the forums on SubsetSum@Home and DNA@Home, because they’re going to just use the forum on Citizen Science Grid. That way all projects will be using the same forum.
Does that sound okay?
- Constellation: Comet Trails: Esa Rosetta and Comet Trails
06.08.2014 04:29 Uhr
this is a brief news for now, it will be expanded later.
Today, the ESA Rosetta mission will approach its destination at Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. It is an extraordinaire achievement and we want to celebrate this is a special way.
We thought, it would be great to have all of us somehow related to this event, so we made you calculate the dust streams of Churyumov–Gerasimenko during the last runs of our Comet Trails app and animate it.
Here you go… click the image for the youtube video

- MilkyWay@Home: N-Body Release 1.42
05.08.2014 17:02 Uhr
N-Body will be released at 4 pm EST today. Features of this release include an improved dwarf galaxy model and new data representation features. Post here with issues.
As this is likely my last release on this project (due to my move to England for graduate school), I would like to thank all of you for helping me do great science during my time affiliated with Dr. Newberg’s group. I will still be active in the community, but I am proud to hand my role in the project off to Sidd. I look forward to a continued relationship with the BOINC community in the future.
- Rosetta@home: Project News Aug 05, 2014
05.08.2014 07:00 Uhr
Slowdown Update: As it turns out, the slow-down experienced during the last week of July was the result of a very large surge in users joining the project through a new campaign by http://charityengine.com. As the servers were behaving properly – just overwhelmed – and DK was on a well-deserved holiday, it was difficult for the rest of us to pin-point the cause. You can see the recent surge here. We are looking at changing/expanding our webserver frontend to be more resilient to surges like this in the future. Yet again, we apologize for the frustration caused. -KEL
- Wildlife@Home: project unification
01.08.2014 00:28 Uhr
So I want to try and start unifying the projects to simplify server updates, checking the forums, etc. Before I get going I want a little feedback as to what I’m planning so everyone is okay with it.
Basically, I’m going to create a new project (probably called “Citizen Science Grid”) or something along those lines. Unfortunately, because people have different accounts on each project I can’t do an automatic merge of the users and databases. So this means you’d have to create a new account on the new project (when the new project starts those will be the only forums for the site).
When the new project is up and going, I’ll allow everyone to transfer their credit from their other accounts via a webpage (basically if you’re logged in, you can enter in the user name and id of your account on citizen science grid, hit okay and it will transfer the credit over). So a couple questions about this approach:
1. will it break the credit trackers too badly? I’ll subtract credit on the old project to 0, and then add the same amount of credit to the new account on citizen science grid.
2. I kind of want to keep credit for the different projects separate; if I keep different tables and export the stats of each project as it’s own part of XML, will that cause any problems? Or would everyone rather just have one combined credit for each of the projects here (Wildlife@Home, DNA@Home, and SubsetSum@Home — we’ll probably be launching another one in the fall as well, so I want to get this done before we go doing that).
So, once I get some feedback, and if people don’t have too many issues with this I’ll set up the new project and get things started. Otherwise back to the drawing board. :P
thanks, hope to hear from you soon about this!
- Wildlife@Home: Video server downtime
01.08.2014 00:28 Uhr
Just got a message from one of our systems administrators that they’ll be moving the Wildlife@Home video server on August 5th and 6th — so some of the project webpages won’t work during that time. I’ll make another post when it goes down, and keep you posted as to how the move goes. It should be back up August 7th.
