Spanish National Center for Biotechnology uses Atos supercomputing expertise to find out how Covid-19 virus initiates infection

Paris, July nine, 2020

Atos, a global chief in digital transformation, announce that the Biocomputing Unit at the Spanish Nationwide Center for Biotechnology (CNB), part of the Spanish Nationwide Investigation Council (CSIC), is working with Atos’ supercomputing useful resource to develop a refined 3D product of the SARS-Cov2 spike protein. By understanding extra depth about the structure of this protein, which is the a single that the virus takes advantage of to enter human cells, researchers can superior recognize how the virus initiates an infection. This essential action ahead may aid in the development of a vaccine.

The product, created at the Biocomputing Unit of CNB-CSIC working with 3D cryoelectron microscopy, a sophisticated structural strategy, will enable researchers and experts to visualize not only the spike glycoprotein but also other SARS-Cov2 proteins. It has been produced accessible to all scientific researchers throughout the entire world operating on the virus.
