Well, that would be nice, but I've gotten only around 20 WUs in the last week.

Simply speaking the algorithm implemented here is able to find (causal) relations between variables (on various domains). We apply it on 'expression data' obtained from different organisms. A typical computational result is the information that gene X has some kind of relationship with gene Y (this knowledge will help biologists to better understand the biological processes associated with the specific genes). We apply the algorithm (with different parameters) to the organisms of interest of the biologists we are working with. If you want to know more about please look at the 'science' section of the forum.

Thanks. The openness and the friendly replies are exactly why I'm crunching for you. :)

One more thing, I've noticed that the current VV database has only 3611 genes to compute, right? Does that mean these are "cherry picked" genes that need further expansion?

Also, if that's the case, the science meter on the page is not working properly, as it reports 1212 genes as being 4.33%. Sorry if I'm being dumb here.

I've just added another experiment on Vitis vinifera (same dataset as the last one but different algorithm's parameter). This is computationally faster but the work generator will take the same time as before to create a work unit. This means that it would be difficult to build up a large queue of ready-to send workunits...

Could you please explain what is the difference here in more layan terms? I Think a lot of people would like to know exactly what's happening with our submitted results. :) I see that it's marked with the same algo as the E. Coli dataset, but I couldn't find where are the differences or what the end goal of them is.
