Unlocking the Protein Structure of Coronavirus

Unlocking the Protein Structure of Coronavirus

I’m part of the Seattle Structural Genomics Center for Infectious Disease. We’re looking at the individual proteins from coronavirus to determine their three-dimensional structures which provide blueprints for drug design. My colleagues in SSGCID typically use x-ray crystallography to determine protein structures. But not every protein will crystallize. That’s where I come in. I generally …
