Machine learning assisted structure analysis reveals SARS-CoV-2 virus tactics

The proteins of SARS-CoV-2 play key roles in how the virus manages to evade immune defense and replicate itself in patients’ cells. An international research team – with significant contribution from the TUM (Contact person: Prof. Burkhard Rost , Professorship of Bioinformatics ) – has now compiled the most detailed view of the virus' protein structures available to date. The analysis employing artificial intelligence methods has revealed surprising findings.
