Gene@home is a scientific project belonging to the infrastructure TrentoGrid. It is aimed to expand networks of genes, and to perform this task it exploits the computational power of volunteers through the BOINC platform, which allows distributed computing.
The experiment is done on the plant Arabidopsis Thaliana.

This project investigates one of important topics in the bioinformatics, the causal relationship among genes. The algorithm presented in this research is tested on plants, namely Arabidopsis thaliana. In future, the algorithm are expected to be used in gene networks investigation in animals and eventually in humans. Eventually, the result of this research could contribute to the development of medical science to study gene causal relation in other species.
