The molecular basis for the severity and rapid spread of the COVID-19 disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 is mostly unknown.

To do so, a team of HIV researchers, cellular biologists, and biophysicists collaborated to determine the atomic structure of a coronavirus protein. (See Credit: Lead author Mohan R. Bhagwat, University of Technology & Technology of India.)

The combination of the technical innovation of using atomic force microscopy to visualize a curated proteomic dataset and the insights it provides about a genomic disease directs scientists onto novel therapeutic approaches. View the video below to learn more.

China again took a powerful stand on Friday against a U.S. move to punish companies doing business with North Korea, saying that any further such punishment is a direct breach of a decision by North Korea to halt its nuclear program.

The statement by Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang came one day after President Trump threatened tweet freaks that their access to Twitter would stop until he sees "big changes."
