Gamma ray pulsar?

On the GEO600 site I have read that nine gamma ray pulsars were discovered using the methods of gravitational wave astronomy. Was Einstein@home involved in any way? I haven't seen any mention in this site.

The analysis code with which the the nine pulsars were discovered is running now on Einstein@Home as the "Fetmi-LAT Gamma-Ray pulsar search" (FGRP1) to find more.

The first nine pulsars were found by running this code on ATLAS.
