Dmitry Korkin is a professor of bioinformatics and computational biology at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. In this conversation, Korkin discusses the biology of the virus and how computational methods can help us understand its structure and function. He also discusses the recent coronavirus pandemic and how cryptocurrency is still in its early days of development.
This video discusses the computational biology of coronavirus, focusing on how scientists are using information technology to help them study the virus. It also mentions a study that found that a person who is symptomatic is already contagious, and another study that found that a person sheds viruses in a number of ways.
In this podcast, Dmitry Korkin discusses his work in computational biology and how it has led to new insights into the workings of viruses and genes. He also shares his frustrations with the Russian scientific community and his favorite scientist, Edward Osborne Wilson.
