I've found two BOINC projects associated with genetic research, but not
the corresponding ways to submit work for them to do.

Located in Israel; mostly human genetic research.

Located in Germany; mostly comparisons of protein sequences
from different species, but also some comparisons of genetic
sequences from different species.

I've seen little sign that either of them will make their software
available for use elsewhere.
