“Identification and Validation of Drug-Like Inhibitors against SARS-Cov2 Replication”

Alternate, Person selected can work on any of the following ongoing projects:

  1. Development of in vitro HEV Culture system to establish the role of its enzymes and their inhibitors to study the replication cycle of the virus. (DST)
  2. Biochemical and Biophysical characterization of the non-structural enzymes of HEV
    involving their crystallization to find out their inhibitors that may act as putative drug
    candidates. (DBT)
  3. Study the mechanism of processing of HEV polyprotein leading to its cleavage into Nonstructural enzymes. (DST)
  4. Modelling and simulation of the non-structural enzymes to predict the active site and its
    inhibitors using virtual screening ( WOSA)
  5. Finding out cleavage sites on HEV polyprotein by mutagenizing Cysteine protease, the
    digesting enzyme,
