EXSCALATE4COV

EXaSCale smArt pLatform Against paThogEns for Corona Virus

The EXSCALATE4CoV (E4C) project aims to exploit the most powerful computing resources currently based in Europe to empower smart in-silico drug design. Advanced Computer-Aided Drug Design (CADD) in combination with the high throughput biochemical and phenotypic screening will allow the rapid evaluation of the simulations results and the reduction of time for the discovery of new drugs. Against a pandemic crisis, the immediate identification of effective treatments has a paramount importance. First, E4C will select through the EXSCALATE platform, the most promising commercialized and developing drugs safe in man. Second, select from >500 billion molecules new pan

coronavirus inhibitors. Huge computational resources are needed, therefore the activities will be supported and empowered by four of the most powerful computer centres in Europe: CINECA, BSC and JÜLICH and Eni HPC5. The Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB) will provide the homology 3D models for the viral proteins. The Fraunhofer IME will provide the BROAD Repurposing Library and biochemical assays for the most relevant viral proteins. Phenotypic screenings will be run by KU LUEVEN to identify molecules capable of blocking virus replication in in vitro models. IIMCB and ELECTRA will determine the crystal structure of at least one coronavirus functional proteins to evaluate
