Dear participants,

we have prepared three new targets for you! They all base on 3CLpro protein, a prime target for antiviral drug discovery because of its central involvement in virus replication. Another reason to put them high on the list is that we have a good possibility to test interesting results in a lab. The targets 6, 7 and 8 are X-ray identified allosteric sites on 3Clpro. We will make a limited number of workunits to ensure everything works fine, and then launch full-scale screening on the new targets. We will temporarily pause processing of Target 5 in favour of the new ones.

With best wishes,
Team SiDock@home

I am glad that you are able to switch to more promising targets when they appear. This is no doubt still a rapidly-developing field, and everything is evolving rapidly (including the virus).

Are those targets solved by AlphaFold already? How to compare Sidock to AlphaDock ?

Where do you see that "AlphaDock" exists? AlphaFold is for protein folding, not docking.

the AlphaFold project aims at predicting three-dimensional shapes of proteins in silico (in a computer). The results can be very useful indeed, but one needs additional information to do virtual screening. In particular, one needs to determine the potential binding site on the complex surface of the protein. Our new targets are such binding sites identified in a recent paper. The authors studied the protein as a crystal using X-rays rather than in silico.
