[SIDock@home] Target # 22: corona_RdRp_v2

Dear participants,

After doing initial studies on an established SARS-CoV-2 target RNA dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp), we are departing from protease studies and focus on RdRp along with additional NSP targets. Namely, RdRp (NSP12), is responsible for the transcription of viral genes and ultimately replication of the viral genome. The studied active site binds RNA and was previously studied in the context of remdesivir, galidesivir, molnupiravir and several other small molecules. Further reading below:

Figure 1: RdRp in white color along with RNA chain and N4-hydroxycytidine from Molnupiravir in the active site (red stick model).

With best wishes,
Natalia, Marko, Črtomir, hoarfrost.

[SIDock@home] СmDock "long" and "short" tasks applications

Dear participants!

We created new applications named as "CurieMarieDock 0.2.0 long tasks" and "CurieMarieDock 0.2.0 short tasks", both based on CmDock 0.2.0 release. Algorithm of both applications are identical, but for "short tasks" we created only ARM-version and we plan to generate a special, smaller in 5 times tasks that covers one of part of entire tasks set. We advice all owners of small single-board computers like Raspberry Pi, to switch to "short tasks" application.

In next 1 .. 2 days we continue to generate new tasks "Sprot_delta_v1" (extended run) for both application, but later we issue a sample tasks set for new target (# 22) and only for "long application" because all task of sample set will be large. Simultaneously, project will continue to send Sprot_delta_v1 tasks for "short" application. And then we will proceed to sent long and short tasks for appropriate applications.

Hope that this explanation makes situation is clear.

Thank you for participation and donation of CPU time!

[] Request to volunteers to please enable: 'Leave non-GPU tasks in memory'

The OpenIFS model batches require the option 'Leave non-GPU in memory while suspended' to be enabled under boincmgr -> Disk&Memory. This will prevent the task from frequently restarting and reduce the risk of task failure.
