More COVID-19 Protein Resources!

Who is tired of COVID-19?? Me too!

But the resources are awfully disorganized. Here are 3 you might find useful.

1) Newest Protein FASTA!!

Are you directly looking for the newest UniProt FASTA? It will be in 2020_02 (Mid April release) Those great people have already made a pre-release but you have to get it from FTP.

You can directly find it at the FTP site here.

If you get a weird link failure, chances are your browser or your firewall don't allow direct FTP access. Re-enable those if you have the ability to do so.

If you're on Windows, you can sometimes get around that by going to your File Explorer and putting the FTP address in like this:

If you just need the FASTA itself, here is a download link. The UniProt has accessions and is cleaned up and nicer than the one I assembled earlier. I did rename it since theirs just says "coronavirus" (Thanks Virginia Tech for the storage!)

2) 3D Models from SWISS-Model are up!  You can check them out here.

3) That's not nearly enough 3D models for you? Check out the resources from the Zhang lab at Michigan!

These include high complexity models like the assembled units for Chain A, B, C and Spike protein.
