About BOINC/[email protected]

The Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing, (BOINC), is an open-source middleware system that supports volunteer and grid computing. Originally developed to support the [email protected] project, it became generalized as a platform for other distributed applications in areas as diverse as mathematics, linguistics, medicine, molecular biology, climatology, environmental science, and astrophysics, among others. BOINC aims to enable researchers to tap into the enormous processing resources of multiple personal computers around the world.

[email protected] is a distributed computing project for disease research that simulates protein folding, computational drug design, and other types of molecular dynamics. Its main purpose is to determine the mechanisms of protein folding, which is the process by which proteins reach their final three-dimensional structure, and to examine the causes of protein misfolding.


NCODED is a Private, Not for profit, UK Organisation committed to processing data for BOINC and [email protected] Research Projects.

For 2021 we have decided to mainly concentrate our data processing on the following BOINC Research projects:

  • Climate Prediction (Oxford University/Met Office, United Kingdom) - climateprediction.net
  • GPUGrid (Pompeu Fabra University, Spain) - gpugrid.net
  • World Community Grid (IBM and International Universities/Hospitals) - worldcommunitygrid.org
  • [email protected] (University of Washington, USA) - boinc.bakerlab.org/rosetta
  • [email protected] (University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee, USA) - einsteinathome.org

Our Servers run a mixture of INTEL and AMD Processors, as well as NVIDIA Pascal GPU's
