The world’s most powerful computer-driven to defeat the Corona virus

The world’s fastest supercomputer is also in motion to defeat the new Novel Corona virus.The global outbreak of the new virus is a challenge for scientists that is unprecedented, and to defeat its spread, it is necessary to advance the research process even faster.

And Summit, the world’s fastest supercomputer, is designed to do just that.

CNN reports that the IBM supercomputer is equipped with artificial intelligence that can perform thousands of analyzes that can help determine which compounds can effectively prevent the virus from infecting cells. Are.

This supercomputer has identified 77 chemical compounds that can be helpful in the preparation of the most effective vaccine.

Scientists at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory published the results in the journal ChemRxiv.

It is to be noted that this computer was developed by the US Department of Tawaai in 2014 to solve high problems.

Its power is 200 petaflops and a betflop means that one thousand trillion operations per second, meaning that this supercomputer can do 2 million trillion calculations per second.

Prior to this, the computer has identified Alzheimer’s cellular systems, analyzed genes that contribute to habits such as opiate addiction, and predicted climate change.

How will this Corona fight against the virus?
Viruses infect the host cells and the task of this computer is to find compounds that prevent the cells from spreading the process.

During the research, scientists developed a model of the corona virus spike protein and tried to find out through the computer how this viral protein reacts to different compounds.

The supercomputer operated more than 8,000 simulations to find out which of these compounds could prevent virus spike protein functions and identify 77.

Now the research team will once again repeat this process in the computer and this time this month use the more authentic model of the Corona virus spike protein.

Once the compounds have been identified, they will be experimentally tested and decided on which chemicals may work better.

The researchers stated in a statement that our findings do not mean that we have discovered corona virus treatment, but these findings will help future research studies and make it easier to develop more effective vaccines.
