The project Asteroids@home was started with the aim to significanly enlarge our knowledge of physical properties of asteroids. The BOINC application uses photometric measurements of asteroids observed by professional big all-sky surveys as well as 'backyard' astronomers. The data is processed using the lightcurve inversion method and a 3D shape model of an asteroid together with the rotation period and the direction of the spin axis are derived.

Transcription factors have "fingers" that prefeo a certain short, sloppy pattern in the nucleotides "letters" of a DNA sequence, but in many cases we don't know what these patterns are. Our software looks for short sequences of nucleotides that appear more-or-less the same near multiple gene beginnings and which also appear more-or-less the same in the corresponding locations in the genomes of related species. As DNA sequences are huge, ranging from millions to billions of nucleotides, and these sequences are short and only approximately conserved from one site to the next, this is a real needle-in-the-haystack problem and requires lots of computational power.

Prime Numbers are of great interest to mathematicians for a variety of reasons. Primes also play a central role in the cryptographic systems which are used for computer security. Through the study of Prime Numbers it can be shown how much processing is required to crack an encryption code and thus to determine whether current security schemes are sufficiently secure. PrimeGrid is currently running several sub-projects: -Primegen: generating a public sequential prime number database (end phase). -Twin Prime Search: searching for gigantic twin primes of the form k*2n + 1 and k*2n - 1. -Cullen-Woodall Search: searching for mega primes of forms n*2n + 1 and n*2n - 1. -3*2^n-1 Search: searching for mega primes of the form 3*2n - 1. -Prime Sierpinski Project: helping Prime Sierpinski Project solve the Prime Sierpinski Problem.
