Predictor@Home, or ProteinPredictorAtHome (PPAH), is a distributed computing project run by The Scripps Research Institute to predict protein structure from protein sequence, testing and evaluating algorithms and methods in the context of the Sixth Biannual Critical Assessment of Techniques for Protein Structure Prediction. Predictor is a pilot project of the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) and runs on Windows, Mac and Linux (x86) machines.
On Jaunary 10, 2005 the Predictor team "Spread Firefox" was created. The member count grew slowly at first, but began to increase more rapidly when one of our blog posts was listed as an SFX Top Post . After that, the team did well and on March 8, 2005, the team passed two milestones: 30,000 total credits (cobblestones) and 100th world position, thus becoming listed on the first page of several external statistic sites.
April 1, 2005: 42 active members, 60,000 total credit, rank 69, 38th most productive
June 1, 2005: 62 active members, 150,000 total credit, rank 48, 33rd most productive
