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!(Sun, 05/09/2021 - 02:37 | 2 comments)
