Computational predictions of SARS-CoV-2 proteins

SARS-CoV-2 protein structure

Auburn Engineering researchers are participating in the Critical Assessment of Structure Prediction’s community modeling of proteins for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the COVID-19 disease. Knowing a protein’s structure helps researchers understand how it functions, opening the door for future therapies and drugs. Assistant professor Debswapna Bhattacharya’s research group has emerged as a leader in protein structure prediction, placing in the top 10 in the world in the 13th Community Wide Experiment on the Critical Assessment of Techniques for Protein Structure Prediction held from 2018-19.
