- SETI -
seti at home : Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence

Join the search for extraterrestrial intelligence.
Radio telescopes arround the world are scanning the skies for the telltale proof of extraterrestrial intelligence: a radio transmission from another intelligent civilization! the problem is that the data collected is so enormous that it would take too long for the fastest supercomputers to sort and analyze through. Thats where you can help.

to run Seti@home you need the BOINC (Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing) program. This program also lets you run other projects in the background like those at the World community grid.

-Genome Comparison
-Help Cure Muscular Dystrophy
