700 new structures
Another small bunch of new COD entries are added for processing.

Update. All WUs are sent to the hosts.

3032 new structures were added for processing
A bunch of new COD structures (for October and November 2017) was added to the project. From now on the updates will be more regular (about twice a month).

Also, now the structure is considered processed by the user if the user calculated at least one diffraction pattern (x-ray or the neutron one, does not matter) for this structure. So, the numbers of processed COD entries are increased for all users. Now, it is also possible to view the complete list of the COD structures processed by the user (see 'view all' link near the number of processed COD entries). Note that displaying this list may take some time for the top participants who have 100,000+ structures processed.

Update. All WUs are sent to the hosts.

That's all! You did it!
It remains only to wait for the tasks in progress. Thank you very much for participating! You helped create the database of simulated powder diffraction patterns: http://database.xansons4cod.com.

You calculated:

x-ray diffraction patterns for 356 202 structures (92.6% of all COD entries),

neutron diffraction patterns for 370 533 structures (96.3% of all COD entries).

Nikolay Khrapov almost finished the database interface. We still need to write the "About" page which is left blank for now.

Since COD itself has advanced search by chemical composition and other properties of the structure, for our database searching only by COD ID is enough. The structure's page (example) contains interactive charts showing simulated powder diffraction patterns, links to the data files with these patterns (in text format) and the list of volunteers who contributed to this page. If the COD ID does not exist or was not processed, the respective page is empty.
Note that despite the COD ID is a 7-digit number, only about 384,600 entries exist and the IDs do not necessary go by numerical order (there are gaps).

Calculations are almost complete!
WUs for the last COD entries are sent out, but we still have to recalculate some of the old WUs (mostly for the GPU). It will take another 10 hours or so.

New structures added to the processing list
Updated the processing list of COD IDs with 5350 new structures added to COD since project restart (June 18th). 26 Sep 2017, 9:45:40 UTC · Comment
