A Performance/Cost Evaluation for a GPU-Based Drug Discovery Application on Volunteer Computing

Table 6

Averaged economic costs in $ for processing 6000 redocking simulations of ligands (ligand A (l1c4), ligand B (2byr), and ligand C (3p4w)) in a local machine. We also vary the number of Monte Carlo steps to increase the computational cost.
