Abstract

In close collaboration MolSSI and BioExcel have built the COVID-19 Molecular Structure and Therapeutics Hub (covid.molssi.org) to gather and disseminate the molecular sciences’ community efforts on the pandemic in one location. The main goals of this Hub are to provide a single source for researchers in the Computer Aided Drug Design (CADD), the Drug Discovery (DD), molecular modeling, and molecular simulation communities to not only share their efforts, but benefit from the products of others looking to contribute their scientific prowess and help tackle the ongoing pandemic.

In this webinar, Levi Naden will be presenting the Hub in both how to access its data and how to contribute your own data. He’ll also be talking about the importance of a place to track the greater scientific efforts into the COVID-19 pandemic and the partnerships and collaborations which have contributed time, expertise, resources, and data; all in the name of bringing the scientific community together in a way not previously seen to tackle this global crisis.
