Apr 2, 2014 Journal post from David Baker There has been very exciting recent progress in designing vaccines and small molecule binding proteins using Rosetta that is described in two recent papers in Nature. These and other recent advances are described in the new Rosetta@Home Research Updates thread. It was suggested there that we send out a monthly email newsletter describing recent progress--we haven't done this before to avoid clogging everybody's inboxes but we certainly could if there is interest. Feb 5, 2014 UPDATE - We successfully moved all the hardware that supports Rosetta@Home to new a home, some 25 m from it's old location. We did this to help balance the heat load in the datacenter as well as gain more physical space and electrical power for future R@H expansion (if we can afford it).
