Summary of Berkeley SETI Research
Here's a research poster by BSRC director Andrew Siemion from 2013 (but still mostly up to date) summarizing our group's work, including SETI@home.

We are currently working on deep cleaning one of our databases (see http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=77096), but we hope to have new work units out to your clients soon. Thanks for crunching!

Prof. Shelley Wright from UC San Diego, working with members of the BSRC team including Dan Werthimer, Andrew Siemion, and Geoff Marcy, successfully achieved first light last weekend on a new instrument to search for pulses of infrared light from extraterrestrial intelligence. This exciting new area of research is highly complementary to our ongoing work using radio telescopes and SETI@home.
