The Artificial Intelligence research group of the Biological Research Centre (SZBK) is participating in an international project targeted at examining how the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus functions and spreads based on human datasets generated by the Human Cell Atlas consortium. Their focus is on better understanding of viral tropism and immune pathways on the example of respiratory and gut epithelial cells. If the biological mechanism of the spread of the virus can be identified, an effective clinical strategy for prevention and treatment can be developed. The related scientific paper has recently been accepted for publication in Nature Medicine.
