Global molecular modelling and simulation efforts toward COVID-19

25 Mar 2020 Southampton - HECbiOSIM created an online resource to host up-to-date links for covid-19 related research that falls within the biomolecular modelling and simulation umbrella. The ultimate aim is to help coordinate efforts to maximise efficiency by bringing together people, projects and resources.

There are a myriad different projects currently underway within the biosimulation community. Homology modelling and structure refinement projects which focus on the same proteins are underway. Others are running virtual screening efforts against the same targets. If we coordinate these efforts, we can avoid duplication and share the workload. Furthermore, there are trained biomolecular simulation scientists, who are not running projects in this area, but are willing to contribute towards ongoing efforts by running calculations on their local resources.
