I will help you getting an explanation.

An Ligand is an ion or molecule (functional group) that binds to a central metal atom to form a coordination complex. The bonding with the metal generally involves formal donation of one or more of the ligand's electron pairs. (Source: Wikipedia)

in silico means (of scientific experiments or research) conducted or produced by means of computer modelling or computer simulation.

An for the last one
Chemical subspaces are defined by the elements included and the size of the largest molecules. ... A complete chemical subspace is defined as a set of molecules, where breaking any bond in any molecule creates fragments that are also part of the subspace

This topic is a bit harder to explain, however try googling "Systematic Enumeration of Elementary Reaction Steps in Surface Catalysis" to find an short explanation.

Here is an first detailed view of the new UK Covid Mutation that is quickly spreading in UK lately: https://virological.org/t/preliminary-genomic-characterisation-of-an-emergent-sars-cov-2-lineage-in-the-uk-defined-by-a-novel-set-of-spike-mutations/563

Just an hour ago the netherlands confirmed the first case of this mutation, named B.1.1.7. It also seems to be more willing to mutate than the "normal" Covid.

Conclusion

We report a rapidly growing lineage in the UK associated with an unexpectedly large number of genetic changes including in the receptor-binding domain and associated with the furin cleavage site. Given (i) the experimentally-predicted and plausible phenotypic consequences of some of these mutations, (ii) their unknown effects when present in combination, and (iii) the high growth rate of B.1.1.7 in the UK, this novel lineage requires urgent laboratory characterisation and enhanced genomic surveillance worldwide.


Do you think your able to boot those beasts up soon-ish?

Is it possible to add an screensaver / graphics similiar than Rosetta?
