Coronavirus Crystallography Data Analysis

A new highly pathogenic coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2, provisionally named 2019-nCoV) has swept the world since December 2019. The key to responding to this outbreak is to understand the pathogenic mechanism of the virus. Our understanding of the viral infection process at the molecular and atomic levels depends on the ability to map the structural details of individual biological macromolecules and their interactions with each other and with small molecules. The determination of the three-dimensional (3D) structures of proteins is essential for understanding these interactions and their structure-function relationships, which is beneficial for scientists to develop more effective preventive or therapeutic drugs more quickly. With advanced facilities and years of experience in crystallization and structure determination, Creative Biostructure provides flexible X-ray crystallography services covering all technical stages from gene synthesis to structural analysis to support coronavirus-related research.
