Caption: Malariacontrol.net screen saver. Computer graphic showing a 3-D graph (centre) against a simulation of mosquitoes flying around an African landscape. Malariacontrol.net is a volunteer or distributed computing project designed to study malaria infection in Africa. The 3-D graph plots the average infectiousness of human hosts, by age group and over time. Volunteer computing allows scientists to replicate supercomputing power by utilising the idle time of personal computers owned by the general public. Data is sent to a user by the internet and the screen saver performs calculations while the computer is idle. The results are sent back to a base server. This screen saver runs on the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC).
