Project Overview
« on: December 28, 2014, 08:46:53 AM »




Project Overview

The University of North Dakota Citizen Science Grid is run by Travis Desell, an Assistant Professor in UND's Computer Science Department. It is hosted by UND's Computational Research Center and Information Technology Systems and Services. The CSG is dedicated to supporting a wide range of research and educational projects using volunteer computing and citizen science, which you can read about and visit below.


    DNA@Home
The goal of DNA@Home is to discover what regulates the genes in DNA. Ever notice that skin cells are different from a muscle cells, which are different from a bone cells, even though all these cells have every gene in your genome? That's because not all genes are "on" all the time. Depending on the cell type and what the cell is trying to do at any given moment, only a subset of the genes are used, and the remainder are shut off. DNA@home uses statistical algorithms to unlock the key to this differential regulation, using your volunteered computers.

  SubsetSum@Home
The Subset Sum problem is described as follows: given a set of positive integers S and a target sum t, is there a subset of S whose sum is t? It is one of the well-know, so-called "hard" problems in computing. It's actually a very simple problem computationally, and the computer program to solve it is not extremely complicated. What's hard about it is the running time all known exact algorithms have running time that is proportional to an exponential function of the number of elements in the set (for worst-case instances of the problem).

  Wildlife@Home
Wildlife@Home is citizen science project aimed at analyzing video gathered from various cameras recording wildlife. Currently the project is looking at video of sharp-tailed grouse, Tympanuchus phasianellus, and two federally protected species, interior least terns, Sternula antillarum, and piping plovers, Charadruis melodus to examine their nesting habits and ecology.


Notice for DNA@Home and SubsetSum@Home Users

DNA@Home, SubsetSum@Home and Wildlife@Home are now sub-projects of Citizen Science Grid. All workunits for these sub-projects will be sent out from the Citizen Science Grid project. You can link your old DNA@Home and SubsetSum@home accounts to your account on Citizen Science Grid by visiting the link accounts webpage. This will copy the credit over from the old projects to your account here. You'll need to detach your BOINC client from these old projects and attach to Citizen Science Grid.

Linking DNA@Home and SubsetSum@Home Accounts

If you had an account on DNA@Home or SubsetSum@Home before those projects were unified under Citizen Science Grid, you can link your Citizen Science Grid account to those accounts here. Wildlife@Home users are already within Citizen Science Grid and do not have to do this. When your account is linked, you will continue to earn credit for that account on DNA@Home and/or SubsetSum@Home, when you successfully complete workunits for those applications on Citizen Science Grid.
