|Description:||An open-collab. group for those CS/Biotech/Pharma. researchers/engineers from India (pref.), who want to contribute in the field of Drug discovery.|
Before we begin:
Q-Why here? Why foldit?:
A-Why not? From a beginner to an expert (in biotech/bioinformatics), everybody gets something to learn and share here. Can be either used as a ground zero or a proving ground (if you're veteran enough). A wonderful community and a platform overall.
To collaboratively contribute in the field of bio-technical research by solving/tackling serious field/community challenges with the help of interdisciplinary computational methods/ simulations and advanced Bioinformatics techniques.-
Current challenge: Contributing in the development of Antiviral binder protein for SARS-CoV-2 aka COVID-19 antiviral solution.
Approach (for both beginners and Veterans.):
(Note: The approach assumes that you have a fair (intermediate↔Expert-level) knowledge of Science/ Advanced Mathematics (Applied and Overall), expertise in S/W or H/W programming and/or experience with working on skunkworks projects (any field) but have no prior knowledge or experience in medical microbiology (These skills will be helpful during later stages).
