Organized by IBM, World Community Grid runs computations for the fight against cancer, TB and even AIDS. They also contribute to accurate weather modeling for rainfall forecasts in Africa while also contributing to the comprehensive study of the human microbiome and how the bacteria in your gut relates to disease.

SETI, or the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, was the first program with which BOINC was developed in 2002 and since almost 200 different projects have been developed & contributed to since. SETI sifts through vast amounts of radiotelescope data in search of markers indicative of intelligent life in the cosmos.

The LHC or, Large Hadron Collider, is housed at CERN on the border of Switzerland & France. The LHC is the largest & most powerful particle accelerator in the world whose circular collider ring is over 17 miles long. When the protons collide at nearly the speed of light they reproduce the conditions of the early universe for us to study.

Milkyway@home studies the history of our galaxy by analyzing the stars in the Milky Way galaxy's Galactic Halo which includes searching for the ever elusive dark matter. This research is done by mapping structures of stars orbiting the Milky Way - many these structures are actually "tidal debris streams," or dwarf galaxies that are being pulled apart by our Galaxy's superior gravitational field. The orbits, shapes, and compositions of these dwarf galaxies provide vital clues as to the history of our Galaxy, as well as to the distribution of dark matter.

Universe@home reproduces the evolution of numerous stars and of stellar populations as whole galaxies consisting of billions of stars. The vast picture that is obtained let the scientists compare the results with all the attainable observational data.

CLIMATE PREDICTION is one of the largest climate modeling experiments ever. It is is a volunteer computing, climate modelling project based at the University of Oxford in the Environmental Change Institute, the Oxford e-Research Centre and Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics. This project runs intensive climate modeling experiments.

The aim of the Asteroids project is to derive shapes and spin for a significant part of the asteroid population. As input data, we use any asteroid photometry that is available. The results are asteroid convex shape models with the direction of the spin axis and the rotation period. This not only allows us to map our neighboring asteroids but can also give us insight as to if their telemetry could one day affect earth
