You might want to mention that the Ubero project does no useful work at this time.
It uses the same old data over and over...

Aspenleaf says that this project is on "hold" and the first project was completed in 2001. Here's something from the Ubero site:

Quote:
This project aligns the genomic sequence of a wheat germ. It looks for areas in the sequence that have similar attributes. It was launched as Ubero's first project for University of California's Institute of Genomics and Bioinformatics but was finished long ago. It is used as our primary "test project" and the results that are returned are discarded. Members and teams still run it to compete against each other and help keep the Ubero network active.


I think the only purpose it serves is to identify potential looneys for KWSN membership.
