Experiment results for MERS-CoV binders

We have lab results for binder designs against the MERS coronavirus! There is currently no treatment or vaccine for MERS, and a protein binder for the MERS-CoV spike protein could be used to block viral infection.

See the blog for details about the experiment we used to test Foldit-designed binders for MERS-CoV spike!

broken link

The first "lab results" link to https://fold.it/portal/node/2011554 works.

The second link, "the blog", is to the same page, but has a trailing single quote, so the link doesn't work. Also, I'm assuming it was meant to go to a different spot, like https://fold.it/portal/node/2009921 or a similar post.

Also, as Susume noted in #bugs-and-feedback, in https://fold.it/portal/node/2011554, the sentence "Using high-throughput folding experiments, scientists at the" is incomplete, but it does link to a Science article.

Good catch!

Thanks, LociOiling. I've corrected both the News link and the blog post.
