Reactions to Screening paper

Our Screening paper “Exploring the druggability of conserved RNA regulatory elements in the SARS-CoV-2 genome” is now online in Angewandte Chemie. A poised fragment library of 768 compounds was screened for the binding ability to 15 RNA elements of SARS-CoV-2. 69 fragments bound to 13 of 15 RNA elements and three fragments highly specific. Those […]

Recording of the EUROMAR Opening Ceremony 2021

The 17th EUROMAR 2021 took place from July 5th till 8th this year. Due to the pandemic the conference was set up as a virtual event.

Covid19-NMR Consortium on Slovenian National TV

The work of the Covid19-NMR Consortium was presented by Prof. Harald Schwalbe and Prof. Janez Plavec on the Slovenian national TV. Determining the 3D structure of the SARS-CoV2 proteins and RNAs makes it possible to understand the function of these molecule and determine where and how drugs interact. Using NMR spectroscopy fragments binding to the […]
