Rosetta@home created proteins that bind to Covid-19 tighter than even antibodies

All our crunching on Rosetta@home has had a tangible result.

They have designed and created proteins that bind even more tightly to Covid-19 than even antibodies!

This is a really good result in my opinion.

HI Darren

Thanks for the heads-up on this.

As you may know there are at least 3 projects who have developed tasks that will hopefully benefit research into Covid-19 - Rosetta, WCG and Ibercivis.

And it's nice to see that Rosetta are starting to publish their initial results which hopefully will be widely distributed and which may give medical researchers enough of an insight into Covid-19, that will mean that the virus can be brought under control.

And ultimately, vaccines can be developed more quickly for this virus as well as any mutations that develop from it.

regards
Tim
