TN-Grid is a platform that uses Internet-connected
computers to do research in various scientific projects.
You can participate by downloading and running a free program
on your computer.
TN-Grid is based at the Research Area of Trento of the National Research Council of Italy (CNR) and currently hosted by the University of Trento (UNITN). The first project we host is
- gene@home, in collaboration with Fondazione Edmund Mach (FEM)
and the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science (DISI) of UNITN.
We would also like to thank the members of the BOINC.Italy
community who are helping us in this testing phase.

gene@home: Vitis Vinifera experiments
We just started a new 'experiment' on a Vitis Vinifera (grapevine) dataset. Your client will automatically download a ~100Mb files which contains the necessary dataset (shared among all the Vv workunits). We will distribute just a few batches, at the beginning, just to see if everything works as expected.
For further (scientific) information please look at the following thread: http://gene.disi.unitn.it/test/forum_thread.php?id=117

gene@home: Scientific Results (June 2015)
We are very happy to share the scientific results achieved so far, thanks to the help of all you volunteers. Please look at this thread.

We are almost done with our current batch (E. Coli local gene network expansion for 10 networks). We will first analyze the results (this will take some time), then we will be able to choose the best, smaller set of algorithm parameters and use it for the other 100 networks we plan to expand, thus optimizing the computation. In the meantime we will start another experiment on Arabidopsis Thaliana but, before starting it, we need to wait until all the work on E. coli has been generated. This will be done manually, hopefully the next Monday.
For this reason there could be a shortage of workunits in this weekend.

gene@home: Server down next Friday, February 27th
due to maintenance work in the datacenter, we need to temporarily switch off the server. The machine will not be accessible next Friday, February 27th, starting from 9am (CEST). We don't now how long will it take to bring the server up, hopefully just a few hours. Thank you all for your understanding.

gene@home: Holidays are approaching
The winter holiday break will shortly begin, it will be from the 24th December to the 6th of January. During this time the server will (hopefully) be up and there will be plenty of jobs. However, in case of any problems it will be very difficult for us to fix them (a lot of people will be on vacation and also my office will be closed). Season's greetings (and a big thank) to everyone!
