SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus behind the COVID-19 pandemic, has infected hundreds of thousands of people. In response, the scientific community sprang into action to uncover its sequence, structure, and potential biological mechanisms. This information helps guide public health policies as well as drug, vaccine, and diagnostic test development. In this webinar, Emily Troemel, an expert in host-pathogen interactions, will highlight the basic biology of the novel coronavirus and its similarity to other RNA viruses, and David Wang, who is actively researching SARS-CoV-2 and who was involved in discovering SARS-CoV-1 in 2003, will discuss the current state of the field.

Topics to be covered

  • The basic biology of SARS-CoV-2 and its potential host-pathogen interactions
  • The current state of the field in SARS-CoV-2 molecular biology research
