World Community Grid is pleased to announce that as a result of the immense contribution of computing power from our members, Phase 1 of the Discovering Dengue Drugs – Together project finished on August 11, 2009.
The project launched on August 21, 2007 and ran for nearly 2 years. During that time over 159,000 members processed more than 25,500,000 results which required nearly 12,000 years of computing power from about 400,000 computers.
The project was interrupted for 17 weeks when Hurricane Ike made landfall in Galveston, Texas, USA, on September 17, 2008 and significantly damaged the research facility. Fortunately, none of the members of the research team and their families were injured and the facility was put back in working order. The project was re-started in late January, 2009.
