Researchers from Novosibirsk State University contributed to the creation of the first detailed 3D model of Zika virus worked out by a Russian company Visual Science. A detailed prototype made in atomic resolution was created based on the scientific information published using the methods of structural bioinformatics. The model will help researchers diagnose the fever and develop a vaccine for this dangerous disease caused by a tropical virus.
The first case of quickly spread around the world Zika virus has been recently registered in Russia. It was delivered by a person who had been on vacation in the tropics. According to the recent data in some countries of South America and the Caribbean, Southeast Asia and other countries the number of recovered people has stepped over hundreds and thousands. Meanwhile, today there is no specific treatment or vaccine against the disease.
