There are three malaria Boinc projects running and a previous posting asked about the difference between this project and the World Community Grid one. I'd love to find out the difference between this one and malariacontrol.net's project.

Thanks in advance!

malariacontrol.net is an epidemiological investigation into the transmission dynamics and health effects of malaria (see here).

In what way is this non-duplicating the last year finished GoFightMalaria@Home project by Scripps? Has anything changed since the reply 2 years ago at http://findah.ucd.ie/forum_thread.php?id=4&postid=11 (Notice the same ad vina docking engine is used.)

Well somethings have changed, this project has finished it's Malaria project run (just finished a final clean up) and now will move on to Tuberculosis as the next project where they are trying to FiND a cure.

I don't know of any other main projects that are running this disease as a project.

Exact, the current data are for tuberculosis. The next will be ebola or cholera, we don't know yet.

But sometimes we can add some malaria stuff, if we need to re-run an experiment.

You should update the homepage, then.

FiND@Home is a research project that uses donated CPU time to perform docking simulations on malaria proteins. You can participate by downloading and running a free program on your computer. .

BTW, what happened to the Malaria project? Did you find some promising molecules?

This is one part of the malaria project (BOINC). We need to do some work on our side.
