Maybe this is just me, but wouldn't this be more appropriate in the miscellaneous category?

Well, they are currently (and always have been) running medical projects only. :)

I like it where it is.

Yankton, what's your reasoning on moving it?

You ask a Knight for reason!! :kukoo:

The Clean Energy sub project is not a Bio project.

Though I suppose the rest of the sub projects are Bio in nature.

Even though it's just the one, this does make it a varied category project which should place it in miscellaneous.

Plus it's 7:30 in the AM and I haven't had a beer. I know this reason is less applicable, but it's still there.

From the website regarding the Clean Energy Project:
By harnessing the immense power of World Community Grid, researchers can calculate the electronic properties of tens of thousands of organic materials many more than could ever be tested in a lab and determine which candidates are most promising for developing affordable solar energy technology.

See? Organic materials and stuff! Close enough to biology for me! :D

But I've already had my say... you others out there: Your opinions, please.

Methane is organic, but if we had a project for it I don't think I'd consider it a bio project either.

Interesting conversation .....technically Clean Energy is a Physical Science project I believe ...BUT historically WCG has always been BIO ....


My thoughts are to watch and wait, leave WCG Bio ...if their track record changes ...well then we need a Vulcan Mind Melt

I've started doing this for the influenza project. Previous results were for AIDS and CANCER. I think medical is more appropriate.

You are just waiting for Sir_Fart to join in this discussion, aren't you? :D

But I'd say wait a bit with moving else the stats will get messed up again.
STATS? I hear you say. Yes, stats; http://www.digik-oz.nl/dcVaultStats.aspx

Do you think Sir Fart wants to butt in here?
