Help Cure Muscular Dystrophy Phase II on World Community Grid Progress

In three days the HCMD Phase II Project on World Community Grid will have completed 4 full months of computation. As of today, 9/9/09, worldwide volunteers have contributed 4,004 years of computational time to this very important project.


The attached chart is somewhat busy and there is detail there that may seem counter-intuitive (easily explained to anyone who wishes to know), but the keys are:

* The trend for donated computational time has risen over time (now roughly 1 century CPU/day)
* The highest value positions placed at front of computational batches
- This allows scientists to begin analyzing these sooner
- This does not diminish the need for computing all of the remaining positions
- Roughly 2.6% of all computational positions completing/completed to date

There is still a great deal of computation required to complete this project and plenty of time to signup and contribute!
