My point is energy efficiency, not run time.

It won't change it that much, a few watts. Anything in your system will use more. Do you have high-efficiency power supplies?

(It will take more than that to save the Louisiana Purchase anyway.)

Can you run SSE2 on a Windows AMD PC and does anybody know if it brings the runtime down from around 3 hours? On a AMD 5900 X CPU

The best I can tell you is that running the fma on a Ryzen 5950X under Ubuntu 20.04.4 takes 2 hours 27 minutes. And SSE2 is a little slower than that, while as I recall Windows is a little slower than Linux, but not by too much.

I think 3 hours is about what you should expect.

Well, by driving it is more than 440Km (fastest route, around 4 hours)

I have other criteria. I was at Aviano Air Base for two years, which is approximately half-way between them. It is geographically balanced for me.

I run it along with SiDock. Ljubljana is 265 km due east of Trento.
It makes for a geographically-balanced machine.

CRISPR gene editing may cause permanent damage - study

Scientists at Tel Aviv University (TAU) warn that while the CRISPR genome-editing method is very effective, it is not always safe and that sometimes, rearranging pieces of DNA compromises genomic stability, possibly triggering cancer in the long run.

I know. It is a big problem.

Researchers find biomarker that could enable screening for all cancers

The release of a protein produced by the gene KRAS creates a biomarker that doctors can detect.

A good point, but FMA is working for me well enough.
It is mainly west of the Mississippi River that they have the problems.

We may need to give up the Louisiana Purchase.

BA.2.75: A Dark Horse In The Covid Pandemic

To have such unique mutations at this stage of the pandemic when the virus has mutated into hundreds, even thousands of competing strains is astounding. These mutations likely have health officials on high alert, as a wealth of new mutations could indicate increased transmissibility or immune evasion if the variant catches fire like its predecessor.

That is interesting.

We just started another heat wave here. Do you have a feel for the percent Wattage reduction?

No, I just look at the temp. I was running on all cores of a Ryzen 3950X, and it was getting up to 84C, which is near the danger zone when I pick up errors. I like to keep it below 80C.

But for the moment, I have achieved that by under-volting and setting the clock speed to what it can handle. I am now good at 77C even with the fma when running at 3900 MHz and 1.25000 volts on the CPU (each chip is different as you know). However, I know from past experience that SSE2 will run several degrees cooler with only a small loss in performance, if I need it. It probably is only a 5 watt difference in power on that chip though.

... also do a "chmod a+x"

Thanks. That is what I was missing. I had done the other stuff.

I would like to run the SSE2 version rather than the fma version on a Linux (Ubuntu 20.04.4) machine for reduced heat production.

Is there an app_info that can accomplish that? I only see one for avx.

Blood Test Aims to Measure COVID Immunity

A small blood sample and 24 hours might be all that's needed to find out how strong your immune system is against a first or repeat coronavirus infections. Scientists created a test that indirectly measures your T-cell response -- an important, long-term component of immunity that can last long after antibody levels fall off – to a challenge by the virus in whole blood

What will be the next variant of COVID-19, according to science

Scientists from the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and the University of Massachusetts Medical School, in the United States, developed a “machine learning” model that can analyze millions of genomes from coronavirus samples and predict which viral variants will dominate and likely cause new waves. The model was called PyR0 and could help researchers identify which parts of the viral genome are least likely to mutate. and thus are good targets for vaccines that will work against future variants. The results were published in the journal Science.

Genomic differences selected through evolution may offer clues as to why COVID-19 outcomes vary widely

Though underlying medical conditions play an important role, many aspects of why COVID-19 severity can differ vastly from one to another has remained unclear.

A new study identifies dozens of genomic variations that may drive these hard-to-predict differences in clinical outcomes. According to work led by University of Pennsylvania scientists, genomic variants in four genes that are critical to SARS-CoV-2 infection, including the ACE2 gene, were targets of natural selection and associated with health conditions seen in COVID-19 patients.

Tasks ready to send 0

I am wondering whether it is a server glitch or a shortage of work.

For that matter, how much progress are we making on the project?
I don't know where we stand, or what they need.

In the study, an international team of scientists announced they successfully sequenced the A. filiculoids genome as well as the genome of another floating fern known as Salvina cucullata. Co-author and University of California Berkeley integrative biology professor Carl Rothfels, Ph.D. tells Inverse that having these genomes brings scientists one step closer to “understanding some of the crazy biology of these particular species.”

Rothfels says that one of the most “extraordinary features” of this fern is its ability to have a symbiotic relationship with cyanobacteria, which in turn gives it the ability to “fix” nitrogen. Nitrogen fixation is the process by which plants use the chemical element as a fertilizer: Most plants typically can’t do this alone, but the blue-green cyanobacteria that live in the Azolla leaves allow for this process to happen. In turn, Azolla can sustain rapid growth in favorable conditions.

That’s important for multiple reasons, the first being that the fern shows “great promise as a biofuel,” says Rothfel. While it’s been used as a fertilizer for rice paddies in Asia for the past 1,000 years, he and his team are now curious to know whether it could be used as a sustainable fertilizer elsewhere. Its ability to help agricultural crops is compounded by its resistance to pests: Farmers have noticed for decades that bugs generally don’t like ferns, and now the sequencing of the Azolla genome reveals it carries certain genetic mutations that allow it to repel insects.
