Chinese Academy of Sciences

CAS@home is hosted by the Computing Centre of the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP), Chinese Academy of Sciences. CAS@home is a volunteer computing platform for Chinese scientists based on the BOINC volunteer computing software. CAS@home collects the volunteer contributions to computing resources for scientists at the Chinese Academy of Sciences and other Chinese research institutions, to provide massive free computing resources that help the scientists complete major scientific computing tasks. Therefore, CAS@home supports multiple applications. The first application to be launched on CAS@home was developed by scientists at the Institute of Computing Technology (ICT), Chinese Academy of Sciences. It focused on protein structure prediction application (software called SCThread). In addition, Tsinghua University's Centre for Micro and Nano Mechanics (CNMM) an interdisciplinary innovation research center, has prepared an application for simulating flow of fluids and motion of solids on the nanoscale. Beijing Institute of Genomics (BIG), Chinese Academy of Sciences, is preparing an application for gene sequencing for applications in cancer research. And physicists of the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP), Chinese Academy of Sciences, are preparing an application for simulating particle collisions at the Beijing Electron Positron Collider, based on software called BOSS.

cas@home project status

The main application running on CAS@home is the TreeThreader which predicts protein structure. After finishing a big campaign in Oct 2015, there have been sporadic TreeThreader jobs running on CAS@home which is around 200 sequences to predict every month. Currently, the TreeThreader application provides a public service FALCON to allow worldwide biologists submitting their protein sequences for structure prediction, and CAS@home is the backend computing platform for this public service. This service has just been open to the public, and it expects more biologists to use it in the near future with a recent publication. Apart from the jobs from FALCON, there will also be another campaign of TreeThreader between Feb and May 2016 to prepare for the CASP event . As usual, CAS@home appreciates all the support from its volunteers!
