CORONAVIRUS PROJECTS coming to F@h for GPUs

Postby rafwiewiora » Tue Mar 10, 2020 6:59 pm

Thank you all for your patience as we spent a week deciding on how to best use the awesome extra power we've gotten from all you folks wanting to help out with the coronavirus effort. We've settled on 6 projects for now, and there's a lot of new biochemistry data coming in that we'll most likely set up more projects with.

Here are short descriptions of the projects -- we're finalizing the draft of a more detailed blog post right now. In general, we're looking for alternative conformations and hidden pockets within the most promising drug targets, which can only be seen in simulation and not in static crystal / cryo-EM structures. There's some very fresh drug screening data coming out now for some of these, which we'll use to validate the simulations and help direct the screening efforts -- collecting as much data, as rapidly as possible will be crucial, and thank you again for making that possible!

All projects are using the new OpenMM GPU Core22.

You might be experiencing some slow download speeds for a moment as more copies (CLONEs) of these project are being made on the server, should be back to normal very soon.

We've had a very unexpected, and a super amazing, major increase in power last night due to a cloud computing company donating a major amount of GPUs -- some of you might still be seeing the Core22 test project instead of the CoV ones, I apologize, with the current demand the servers are rather slow in making the extra copies of the CoV projects, but this should be resolved by tomorrow (well, except if we get another unexpected major donation.. :) ).

I've spun out another server (plfah1-1) to meet demand -- projects 11747-11751 are copies of the projects above. We've had a very productive last 2 days working on many more projects, stay tuned!
