Course Description

The year 2020 was a disaster in so many ways, but it was also a year of incredible achievements by the scientific community. In a very short period of time, the structure of the SARS-CoV-2 virus was determined and shared, old and new drugs were investigated as possible therapeutics, and new vaccines came to market. In this course, we'll take a look at the science of the SARS-CoV-2 virus; the resulting disease, COVID-19; some of the drugs being investigated as therapeutics; and the vaccines. We'll do all of this exploration by using online, web-based computational tools to look at things such as structural biology, mutations of the virus, drug design and development, and vaccine development. This course has no expectations of a previous background in computing, structural biology, or drug design. | Lecture + Q&A.
