Scientists have deciphered the full genome of a new type of coronavirus

Work on the study of a new type of coronavirus began in February 2020 - then biologists from Texas

Universities have decoded the exact three-dimensional structure of those envelope proteins of the virus that are directly involved in cell infection. Then the data was published in the German GISAID database.

This allowed us to establish that the shell is onlya small part of the atomic structure of the virus, which consists of approximately 200 million atoms. Due to their large number, researchers were not able to study the virus using particle accelerators, which allow you to take pictures at the atomic level.

After that, scientists from the University of California using the Frontera supercomputer created the first atomic model of a new type of coronavirus.

Now Argentine scientists have decrypted the fullthe genome of the virus. Fernandez’s report clarifies that decoding the genome will help improve the diagnosis of epidemiological surveillance and advance towards vaccine development.

Now in 181 countries of the world there are more than 1.43million cases of infection with this infection. 80% of all cases occur in seven countries - the USA, Spain, Italy, Germany, France, China and Iran. At the same time, in China, where the virus came from, there is a significant reduction in the epidemic. Since the end of 2019, 82.1 thousand people have died from coronavirus infection, more than 301 thousand people have been cured. In Russia, there are a total of 7,497 patients with coronavirus infection, 52 patients died, 494 were cured.
