Compute for Science

  • BOINC lets you help cutting-edge science research using your computer. The BOINC app, running on your computer, downloads scientific computing jobs and runs them invisibly in the background. It's easy and safe.

  • About 30 science projects use BOINC. They investigate diseases, study climate change, discover pulsars, and do many other types of scientific research.

  • The BOINC and Science United projects are located at the University of California, Berkeley and are supported by the National Science Foundation.

[RNA World] Happy New Year!

Hallo, es gibt nichts mehr, was ich tun möchte, um Ihnen zu helfen, das Geld zu bekommen, das Sie für das Projekt benötigen, aber leider habe ich kein Geld. Haben Sie über Crowdfunding oder eine andere Methode nachgedacht, um die notwendigen Mittel zu beschaffen? Gibt es Einschränkungen bei der Mittelbeschaffung?

Ich werde mein Bestes geben, um zu sehen, wie die Mittel aufgebracht werden können.
