Someone (with a large number of computers) is getting a lot of tasks
Sorry, crunchers gotta crunch :-)
You do know you're the Formula-BOINC Sprint this week. League One is devouring them:

It hasn't been that long ago that whenever I checked the Science Status page it said we were doing 27 a day. Now it's 50 a day. Doubling in weeks is impressive. This is the most reliable BOINC project I run and I hope it stays that way. Good luck on getting that new server.

Any result we get is immediately available to the scientific community (biologists etc.), for example the ACE2 expansions we completed a few days ago will soon be analyzed by a immunologist, etc.

We are also studying the possibility of doing some work on specific gene datasets recently made up from cells of SARS-CoV-2 infected individuals. In this case we will put 'on hold' the OneGenE Hs project.

Outstanding!!! Are these Covid-19 patients from a specific cohort??? E.g., the hyperimmune, deceased, etc.

Alessio, TN-Grid does not give us that kind of control like WCG does. But you can still make it work as you want using app_config.xml files in your project folders. Now I like to run both Rosetta and TN-Grid as my CPU projects.
In my gene.disi.unitn.it_test folder I have:
<app_config> <app> <name>gene_pcim</name> <!-- needs ? GB RAM per WU --> <!-- Xeon E5-2686 v4 18c36t 32 GB 45 MB L3 Cache --> <max_concurrent>25</max_concurrent> </app> </app_config>


In my boinc.bakerlab.org_rosetta folder I have:
<app_config> <app> <name>rosetta</name> <!-- needs 5 MB L3 cache per mip1 WU --> <!-- needs 1.5 GB RAM per WU --> <!-- Xeon E5-2686 v4 18c36t 32 GB 45 MB L3 Cache --> <max_concurrent>9</max_concurrent> </app> <app> <name>minirosetta</name> <!-- needs 5 MB L3 cache per mip1 WU --> <max_concurrent>1</max_concurrent> </app> <project_max_concurrent>9</project_max_concurrent> </app_config>

You'll get more WUs than you need but you'll run what you want.
My totals leave 2 CPU threads for GPUGrid WUs.

Alessio, Are you asking because you want more WUs or fewer???
If fewer, you can set the Resource to zero and then it should only send more when you run out.

We are actually expanding a lot of human genes, prioritizing them according to the scientists' interests. Among them this one (ACE2) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gene/59272 which is closely related to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Don't expect we will be able to 'find a cure' but we are trying to add something to better know our enemy.

How about expanding the 400 proteins involved in SARS-CoV-2 processing and replication???

Looking forward to crunching your project. Will your WUs come under the gene@home PC-IM category or will we need to select a new category in our preferences???
