Docking@Home will be going through some significant changes in the next couple of months that I want to communicate to you in this personal note since you are all valuable members of our team. After working on the project for more than one and a half year, Andre is leaving the project next week, May 4. He will still work with us to make sure that the forum and the news will be up-to-date but will no longer work full time on the system. We will miss Andre a lot; he has been a valuable collaborator for all of us.
In fall 2007 Docking@Home will move to the University of Delaware where I have a new position as assistant professor. Trilce will move with me and continue her work with D@H. We will work all together to make the relocation as painless as possible. By the way, we have new open positions for two students and one BOINC programmer. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you are interested or forward this note to any person who could be interested.
We plan to have a new newsletter for end of May: Roger Armen and I are working on a more accurate model that better represents the solvent in the docking process (the docking of protein and ligand in nature takes place in solvent) and we plan to explain it to you in the newsletter before to distribute it so that you can better understand how your cycles are used by D@H. I want to thank you all for the great support and I hope you will continue to support us during this challenging time.
