"SIMAP is a database of protein similarities and protein domains. It contains about all currently published protein sequences and is continuously updated. Protein similarities are computed using the FASTA algorithm which provides optimal speed and sensitivity. Protein domains are calculated using the InterPro methods and databases. SIMAP is to our knowledge the only project that combines comprehensive coverage with respect to all known proteins and incremental update capabilities." http://boincsimap.org/boincsimap/
I know this isn't a huge project for us, and this isn't exactly breaking news, but SIMAP is pulling off the grid at the end of 2014. It seems doing all their crunching internally will work best for them now. Hopefully, this means our crunching through the years has served them well.
I figured I'd give a PSA in case anyone wants to lock up one more milestone, help the team's final standing, or knock me out of the team's first place for all of time. Team stats link for reference.

I've been crunching since January, 2002, but I never tried SIMAP. Right now I am testing Windows Technical Preview and trying to figure out what happened to my PPD at Folding@home. I am running F@h because my AMD R9 270X GPU can be used there. As a University of Washington grad, I have a few points at Rosetta, too. Dr. Baker is nice to work with, but so is Dr. Singh.
I have only recently jumped back into crunching seriously after finally sorting my HP computer. Thanks for the discussion of available projects, and I am willing to put my seven available CPU cores (currently on F@h) to work on a different project.
Yessiree Col323 just might get knocked off his perch....just wait and see. I've got 46 cores running and more in the works!!! He won't brag so much after I fix his fancy pants...yes sir. He will be humble in a day or two.
Why so quiet Col323? Don't think I can do it? 46 cores running at 100% capacity ought to put a big dent in your ego, ha, ha.
