American scientists created a complete model of the new coronavirus

Biochemists from the University of Sofia Austin, the state of Texas, created the first full three-dimensional atomic model of the new coronavirus, TASS reports.
The agency cited a message posted on the school's website. The atomic structure of the pathogen's shell was calculated and constructed using a supercomputer, BTA transmits.

"This model will help us identify which parts of the coronavirus play a crucial role in its penetration into human cells. If we manage to reveal these secrets to SARS-Cov-2, specialists will more easily prepare new medicines to counteract it” said Prof. Romy Amaro, appreciating the achievement of the project. The three-dimensional copy will be useful for establishing the impact of known drugs and preparations against the new pathogen.
