PROJECT PROGRESS
  • November 2020: We have implemented ordering and distribution of Wuhobran mask holders for medical workers in Slovenia.
  • October 2020: With the help of Microsoft we’ve finally been able to create our database of one billion compounds ready for docking. As we are currently uploading these compounds to our docking server, the statistics on this site are due to change and will not be reliable until the process has finished. We are looking forward to working with you on new challenges.
  • June 2020: Added statistics about our distributed computing group, all software clients have been updated and optimized
  • May 2020: We have successfully concluded our first mission of the project where we were using molecular docking to search for inhibitors of the main protease of SARS-nCoV-2
  • April 2020: In collaboration with NEOLINK we have developed a graphical client (GUI) for docking on Windows which also incorporates a screen saver with photos of a world-renowned photographer Beno Saradžič
