BOINC client 7.16.20 solves the certificate problem for Windows
If you are running BOINC on a Windows computer, please update to a new version (7.16.20) of the BOINC client. The previous version stopped working recently because of an expired SSL file that prevented it from communicating with several BOINC projects, with the BOINC server, and with Science United. You can download the new version here: https://boinc.berkeley.edu/download.php
With best wishes,

Certificates and project communicating
If BOINC on your computer experiencing a problem during project communicating, try to replace file ca-bundle.crt in programs directory of BOINC (C:\Program Files\BOINC\ca-bundle.crt, for example) by this file: https://srbase.my-firewall.org/sr5/download/ca-bundle.crt and restart whole BOINC processes or reboot computer.

SiDock@home September Sailing
Just now, your computers are hitting three protein targets at once. Due to the low runtimes and (mainly) the friendly contributions of participants and their teams, the data is being processed fast, and we express our gratitude to all of you.
We announce a new competition between teams, SiDock@home September Sailing. Top winners will get the badges:
Heme B, the well-known ligand in the complex of Hemoglobin, helps to carry oxygen in our bloodstream. As we know today, it has emerged from just two mutations that occurred in genome of one of predecessors of modern vertebrates more than 400 million years ago [1,2].

Targets six, seven, eight
we have prepared three new targets for you! They all base on 3CLpro protein, a prime target for antiviral drug discovery because of its central involvement in virus replication. Another reason to put them high on the list is that we have a good possibility to test interesting results in a lab. The targets 6, 7 and 8 are X-ray identified allosteric sites on 3Clpro. We will make a limited number of workunits to ensure everything works fine, and then launch full-scale screening on the new targets. We will temporarily pause processing of Target 5 in favour of the new ones.
With best wishes,

Sidock@home is an international volunteer computing project aimed at drug discovery. The first mission of the project is discovery of possible drugs against the SARS-CoV-2 virus. It started as an extension of the project COVID.SI to engage the BOINC community into the drug discovery.
You can help with your computer. With the help of BOINC, you will download a subset of compounds on your computer, examine the compounds in the context of the studied target and send the results to a server where they are collected for later analysis.
For account creation please use a Crunch_4Science invitation code. It is not needed when registering by BOINC Manager.
