The folding of proteins is an interesting target for drug development that requires structural and conformational analysis of the proteins. One of the challenges in this field is the ability to predict the structure of polypeptide and full proteins. Sybilla Biotech has successfully used new algorithms implemented to the Pharmacological Protein Inactivation by Folding Intermediates Targeting (PPI-FIT) drug discovery approach. Join our webinar to learn more about how this approach has been used to study the folding of ACE2 of SARS-CoV-2 virus.


Uses of Next Generation Sequencing in SARS-CoV-2 virus Monitoring and Research

View

Viruses are known to be able to change frequently their genome to be able to adapt to environmental pressure and persist in their infective action. Next generation sequencing is highly used to understand such changes and determine the origin and the evolution of the virus. Join our webinar to gain an overview of how NGS is applied in the virus study and how PerkinElmer can help in the NGS application.


High Content Screening and Virology: A Review

Speakers

Veronique Berchet PhD
HCS Application Specialist, PerkinElmer

Maria De Lorenzis
Principle Regional Segment Leader, PerkinElmer

View

High content screening (HCS) is frequently used to study the phenotype changes of cells under different experimental conditions and to collect physiological relevant data about the cells. It is commonly used in virology research as well to understand the mechanism of action of virus when infecting cells and to screen for compounds that can inhibit such interactions. Join our webinar to learn more about how HCS can be applied in the research around SARS-CoV-2 research and how PerkinElmer can help in this field.
