Hi Giz. I believe they use different programs and look at different things, in the Human Proteome. Sorry, I can't be more specific at the moment, but will post a comparison as soon as I can.

I believe they are both good projects. They just go about it differently.

edit- Thanks Dave!
I will tell you that I run the Boinc version in both Linux and Windows, and it does seem to run faster. Boinc work units are much smaller and finish faster, imo. They convert Boinc points to regular WCG points at the rate of 7 WCG points per 1 Boinc point, and it's all added together for your stats totals.
