Geohot started to work against Corona virus
George Hortz started to make live streams about COVID-19 novel Corona virus. He’s trying to solve some problems. These are the open questions.
- How is orf1ab cleaved into polypeptides? Can we predict this from the sequence?
- How do the researchers know (guess?) where orf1ab cleaves?
- Which protein is the immune system responding to?
- Find the “furin cleavage site” in the “spike glycoprotein”
- How similar are the other coronaviruses? (causes colds, not either SARS or MERS)
- What adds the phosphate group to the N protein? Kinase?
