Our project, VIRUSHOST AI, which has recently been approved, will make use of Artificial Intelligence to unveil virus-host interactome, under the scope of national funded COVID-19 projects, having been funded with 240.000 euros and 20.000 GPU hours. See the full news here: https://observador.pt/2020/11/05/cientistas-da-universidade-de-coimbra-usam-dados-e-inteligencia-artificial-para-combater-pandemia/.
Our group just published a new paper using AI to identify protein Hot-Spots using sequence-based information only. Checked the paper at https://www.mdpi.com/1422-0067/21/19/7281 and access the server at http://www.moreiralab.com/resources/spotone/.
The Data-driven molecular design group, lead by Irina Moreira, PhD, is part of a project awarded with funding by LaCaixa Foundation and Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia, I.P. by “Iniciativa Ibérica de Investigaçao e Inovaçao Biomédica, i4b”
We are proud to annouce that Catarina Marques, our recently added team member, has won a PhD scholarship under the DOCTORATES 4 COVID-19 project.
