Dear BAGIM Community,
We had a very successful virtual event tonight discussing the computational impact on the COVID-19 efforts. After this event, we received this letter from Rommie Amaro of UCSD (a panelist at tonights event and former mentor of mine).
Dear BAGIM Community,
I want to bring your attention to a new resource to help coordinate the CADD community on opportunities to contribute to COVID-19 research on potential new therapies and COVID-19 biology:
The COVID-19 Molecular Structure and Therapeutics Hub [] is an open data repository where biomolecular scientists can gather and disseminate critical information on the community’s efforts in targeting COVID-19. The main goals of the Hub are to provide a central resource for researchers in CADD, drug discovery, molecular modeling, and molecular simulation to not only share their efforts, but benefit from the intermediate or end products of others contributing to various aspects of COVID-19 research and drug discovery.
The COVID-19 Molecular Hub organizes
  • Therapeutic opportunities (such as key target proteins and binding sites)
  • Structural data (highlighting structures particularly suited to particular therapeutic opportunities)
  • Structural models (suitable for CADD or biomolecular modeling purposes, often correcting significant modeling issues in the original structural data)
  • Simulation data and ensembles associated with these structures and models
  • Molecules and bioassay data of note (such as known inhibitors, inhibitors of related proteins, and molecules with available bioassay data)
We are calling on the CADD and biomolecular modeling communities currently working on COVID-19 (or interested in doing so) to help by contributing new information about structures, models, simulations, and molecules, or joining in on data curation and review teams in areas of their expertise. New contributions can easily be made via pull requests to the GitHub repository by following the instructions on the Contributions page.
BAGIM will have so much to offer!  Please join us in this effort.
Best wishes,
Rommie Amaro
