Reg cancer busters crack on

Onward and upward for Vulture Central II

Cancerbusters!


We have some excellent news regarding Vulture Central II - our team in the Intel/Oxford cancerbusting project.

Having only been in existence for a week, Vulture Central II has returned over 5200 'work units'. This means that the 1166 team members have been processing for a combined total of 11 years.

To put this in perspective, the boffins have 2.5 million molecules up for testing. Each work unit contains 100 molecules, amounting to 25000 work units. Vulture Central II alone has completed 5000 in a single week. We reckon that the boys at the University better start looking for some more molecules down the back of the sofa, or this project will be over within a month.

So, if you want to get a piece of the action while there's still time, you can download the software here. Then sign up with Vulture Central II here. More useful information about the project can be found at http://www.chem.ox.ac.uk/curecancer.html ®
