Evolution@Home Project News: 100 CPU years milestone reached

Postby Jwb52z » Sat Jul 22, 2006 2:13 am

100 CPU-years evolution@home (18 Jul 2006)

Evolution@home just reached a total of 100 CPU years worth of contributed computing power. A reason to celebrate.

The sum of computing power contributed to all evolution@home projects (S005P1-P3) has just surpassed 100 CPU years. Many more CPU centuries of work are before us. In order to attract more participants, several initiatives are under way like a redesign of this website and a press campaign. More in August ...

Why are we still alive?
The first analysis of evolution in Simulator005 is now available as a free download. Its core result is that the current simple standard model of human mitochondrial DNA evolution is incomplete, as it would predict the extinction of the human line in less than 20 million years. While the hunt for extensions of the standard model is on, this work provides yet another reason to fight any pollution that harms our DNA.
