Researchers enlist Summit supercomputer to combat coronavirus

Summit, the most powerful unallocated computer system in the world, has identified a number of chemicals that may stop the spread of COVID-19 and help create an effective vaccine.

During thousand simulations at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, a supercomputer analyzed which compounds could prevent the infection of body cells with a virus, neutralizing his «thorns». 77 discovered substances that meet the stated requirements will become the basis for future research to find an effective vaccine.

Since the compounds themselves are not a medicine, in the future scholars from help the updated computer model will be engaged in the development of a drug that is not only will be able prevent the spread of infection, but also will be safe for application.

After of this biochemists also you will need to create its material sample, and then conduct a series of experiments and confirm the stated properties in practice.

Recently researchers also developed new reusable face masks with nanofiber filter, which can solve the problem of scarcity.
