Brett Averso, CTO, and I recently had a follow up discussion on our first coronavirus chat. Brett provided visualizations and commentary on coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), ACE2, SARS-CoV-2 with SARS overlay, and antibody fragments to help people better understand the threat we’re currently facing, as well as put it in its proper context. Brett also discussed the role AI can play in finding an effective treatment for COVID-19. Give it a watch below.
