Use of a Desktop Grid to effectively discover hits in virtual drug screening
Evgeny Ivashko and Natalia Nikitina

Their distribution of the desktop grid systems (desktop grid) was already about 20 years ago, but they still remain an effective computing tool for scientific research. The importance of developing and improving methods for the effective use of personal computing devices is constantly increasing. This is due to the fact that the emerging new classes of personal computing devices have new capabilities, in particular, the ability to connect them to clusters and supercomputers. This, in turn, makes new demands on the organization and methods of using desktop grid systems. Within the framework of the seminar it is proposed to discuss the directions of development and experience of using desktop grid systems.
