Relying on physical experimentation alone is not economically sustainable in today’s rapidly evolving COVID-19 environment. Scientists need a deeper understanding of both how and why potential antiviral therapies and vaccines will perform against COVID-19, and they need it today.
As an active supporter of the scientific community that is collaborating today on COVID-19 solutions, BIOVIA, Dassault Systèmes develops BIOVIA Discovery Studio. This world-class life sciences modeling and simulation environment brings together over 30 years of peer-reviewed research and world-class in silico technique.
It provides researchers with a complete toolset for use from target identification through lead optimization, including tools for biologics design and analysis, classical simulations, structure- and fragment-based design, virtual ligand screening, as well as ADME and toxicity prediction.
As part of Dassault Systèmes’ corporate social responsibility, BIOVIA Dassault Systèmes is pleased to offer academic research groups involved in SARS-CoV-2 related studies a no-charge, six-month license to BIOVIA Discovery Studio to assist them in the search for rapid, safe and effective therapeutic drug candidates against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
This offer will run through June 30, 2020.
