PROJECTS 7620 and 7621 - CheY Folding
Moving to advanced!
For nVidia Fermi GPUs (GPU3) on Win32 machines
Points = 5187
timeout = 12.6
deadline = 17.9
atoms = 1980
Additionally, these WUs will require a new version (v2.20) of Core15, which should be automatically downloaded as needed.
These projects aim to study the folding of CheY, which, if successful, will be the largest protein folded in silico. CheY is well-studied experimentally, and exhibits many interesting scientific features. Due to it's wide study in the lab, we hope that it will provide a test case for FAH methodology, and give us good ideas about how to improve our techniques. This is an exciting project, since it represents something that is really only possible on FAH combined with the power of GPUs.
NOTE: These WUs are significantly larger than previously released GPU WUs. While I stress *we have not seen any damaged hardware*, they may stress older cards (GTX 450 and earlier) and overclocked cards. If you have an overclocked card, and receive one of these units, monitor your card's temperature actively. You may want to reset to factory clock settings.
