COVID-19 Molecular Docking

Obtaining the structural information of the complex of an individual protein with other molecules (such as proteins, nucleic acids, and small molecules) can help understand the mechanism underlying such interaction, which is significant for drug discovery and development. However, it is relatively difficult and costly to obtain three-dimensional (3D) complex structures through experimental methods such as X-ray crystallography or NMR spectroscopy. Nowadays, Creative Biostructure not only provides experimental techniques for structure determination, but also exploit computational docking methods to predict the 3D structures of these interacting partners to support the development of antiviral drugs against coronavirus infection.
