Strange. We have a lot of workunits in the line-up, so there shouldn't be an issue. We'll look into it.

Those were the corrected ones. There is currently a CMYB_equil3 batch as well, that also seems to be going without problems. These simulations are part of a much bigger batch that will come soon.

And indeed there was a problem, so I have stopped them and I will resend them corrected. Sorry about that. For some reason checks before submission did not flag the problem. Very frustrating.

Hello all,

I have submitted some simulations of a small peptide to the short queue. This is a special type of simulation, and it is also the first time I am running them, so there may be errors with them. Please let us know what you see. There should be pass through quickly, however, so hopefully they don't cause too many problems.

5) Message boards : News : Uncovering the role of membrane lipids in modulating enzyme activity (Message 35000)
Posted 65 days ago by Profile nate
Hello everyone,

At the end of last year, we updated the badge system to include several new publications we had just published. Today we want to highlight one of those pieces of work.

Starting in Mid-2011 (an eternity ago), we began collaborating with a research group in Italy to better understand something strange they had been seeing in their experiments. Specifically, they were seeing that when they modified the composition of lipids in a cell membrane, the activity of an enzyme named FAAH increased. They came to us to try to better understand why that was happening. Through simulations performed here on GPUGRID we discovered that, contrary to expectations, the lipids modified the function of the enzyme by directly interacting with it and its endogenous ligand. It had been expected that structural changes in the membrane would be the culprit, but that was not the case. Additionally, we report the first unbiased binding of a lipid to a membrane protein. This is one of the first experiments of this kind ever performed, and was possible only because of the compute power we have here at GPUGRID. You can read more about it on the science page here, as well as check out the video of the binding event.

Please note that (almost) all the papers we publish are available on our lab webpage. They can be found here. The versions of the documents there are the pre-print versions, basically meaning they are not formatted to look pretty. This is due to restrictions placed on us by the publishing companies. The text and figures are identical to those in the "pretty" version published in the journal, however. We are working on putting out copies of any papers missing from that page.

Lastly, we remind you that GPUGRID accepts donations beyond compute time, and if you're interested you can see how to do so on our Donations page. Of course, the crunching time donated by all of you is greatly appreciated.

Thanks and onward,
The GPUGRID Team

Yes, it will be officially published in two weeks, but it has been fully accepted and we are just working with the publisher on final formatting for the article.
7) Message boards : News : New Badges for four new articles (Message 33955)

Hi everyone,

As some of you may have already noticed, we have updated the badges to include four recent publications. In other words, many of you should have new colored water badges with rankings in your profiles.

In the coming days/weeks we'll be updating the Science pages with details about the new publications, as well as posting here and on the Facebook page to give you all some background about the works.

If you have not received any badges in this round, please note that many of the workunits for this round were performed 1-2 years ago (inlcuding my infamous NATHAN_FAAH workunits, started in September 2011!). These papers have been a long time coming, and we are very glad to finally have the results published. Do not worry if you were not included in this round, because we expect to have another update in the coming months. Lots of good results in the pipeline, we are just trying to get them published.

Finally, just a reminder that GPUGRID accepts donations beyond compute time, and if you're interested you can see how to do so on our Donations page. Of course, the crunching time donated is greatly appreciated.

And as always, thanks and onward.
The GPUGRID Team

Hey guys,

Minor group of workunits here on long queue. Just a small fix/check on some work we have sent for publication. You should barely notice them, and they should finish quickly.

Regards,

Nate

Some NOELIA WUs should start to trickle in now. There was an issue with the priority of certain tasks in the scheduler. Fixed now.

FWIW, I subscribed to this thread but received no notifications!


Noted.

FWIW, PrimeGrid private message implementation has got Inbox & OUTBOX.

Maybe sysadmin can contact PG for further info?


Thanks for the info.
