The CAS@home is a software created by the Chinese Academy of Sciences and it is currently being hosted by the computing centre of one of their establishments which is the Institute of High Energy Physics. The CAS@home is actually a computing platform volunteer based on BOINC computing software volunteer (volunteer account example:Â http://casathome.ihep.ac.cn/show_user.php?userid=12173)and this is made specifically for Chinese scientists. The work of the CAS@home is to collect the important volunteer contributions and given to the computing resources for the scientists who are at the Chinese Academy of Sciences and also for other institutions for Chinese research to help them by providing large free computing resources to complete their scientific computing tasks.
With this type of use, the CAS@home is guaranteed to support multiple application at the same time. Also, the scientists at the Institute of Computing Technology on the Chinese Academy of Sciences were the ones who developed the very first application that has been released on CAS@home. That application was created to focus on the core structure prediction applcation and it was called the SCThread. Moreover, an interdisciplinary innovation research center, which is the Centre for Micro and Nano Mechanics of Tsinghua University, prepared a great application which is responsible for stimulating the fluid flow and the motion or movement of solids and this is being done on the nanoscale.
Then, the Beijing Institute of Genomics, which is also part of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, is making an certain application responsible for sequencing genes for application in the research for cancer. Finally, the physicists who are members of the Institute of High Energy Physics are also preparing or making an application which will be responsible for particle collision stimulating located at the Beijing Electron Positron Collider and this is based on a particular software named BOSS. This is really some of the amazing creations of the members of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the CAS@home is definitely a big help to them.
