11-11-17 Can we repurpose existing drugs to treat new viruses? Learn how students can apply bioinformatics tools like BLAST and Molecule World to address real-world problems and make discoveries.
Your students can use public data to discover new ways to use existing drugs.
In this workshop, you will learn:
- How to find information in the NCBI database about Zika virus and Zika virus reference sequences
- How to find structures from similar viruses, that are binding to drugs
- How to determine if those drugs are likely to bind to Zika virus
