SIMAP (Similarity Matrix of Proteins) is a database for compared protein sequences and provides specialized query tools, to utilize the data effectively. Over 4 millions of protein sequences are compared, for each pair of two sequences. This information is important, because medical research results to specific proteins may be transferred to similar protein sequences. Many results from gene research with mice may be used for human medicine.

SIMAP was able to compare the existing data from the different protein databases faster than expected, because of client optimization. Now, only once in a month updates have to be processed. That means, that in some days there is no work for this project. New WUs are announced very early on the project homepage.

You'll find more information in our project-FAQs.

Optimized clients

Not available.


SIMAP (beendet) uses the BOINC infrastructure. The registration, installation and configuration are described in the user manual.

ATTENTION: CPUs without SSE support needs a special client, which has to be installed manually. Otherwise loaded work units are stopped with an error.


Until now the client ist not showing any graphs while calculating. But the basic BOINC-Screenshots shows, how the client works. If BOINC is in screensaver mode, BOINC logo is displayed with this project.
