Welcome to the Help Conquer Cancer Project, and thank you for participating in this important research. The mission of our project is to improve the results of protein X-Ray crystallography, which helps researchers not only annotate unknown parts of the human proteome, but importantly, improves their understanding of cancer initiation, progression and treatment. Although our focus is cancer, results from this project will help other diseases as well.
Analyzing the results from this experiment will also lead to better understanding the underlying principles of protein crystallography. For the first time, a comprehensive crystallography image analysis will be done, which was impossible before due to computational complexity. In turn,
Thank you again for making vital contribution to the project. It is highly appreciated, as it would take us over 162 years on the largest computer available to us to finish this computation. Although, we expect to finish the project in about 1-2 years on the World Community Grid, we will start analyzing the data incrementally. We will keep you informed about our results at http://www.cs.toronto.edu/~juris/WCG/wcg-hcc.html.
Thank youHelp Conquer Cancer
