COVID Moonshot GPU (OPENMM_22) projects 13420-1 to FAH

Postby JohnChodera » Sun Jul 26, 2020 7:06 am

After extensive testing, we're rolling out the first of many short several-day sprints of relative alchemical binding free energy calculations to prioritize compounds that can be quickly made by our synthetic partners for synthesis.

This set of compounds builds on the 3-aminopyridine-like series ( are examines a series of compounds that can be made by enumerating primary amines that we hope will extend into the P3 pocket of the SARS-CoV-2 main viral protease. We'll post more information about these sprints in a blog post over the next day or two, and hope to also be able to show how far we are in completing the calculations with a progress bar on the Folding@home ( and COVID Moonshot ( pages. We hope to get each of these sprints completed in ~48 hours after we generate these proposed molecules after new data arrives so we can order compounds from our synthetic partners right away.
