Coronavirus3D: 3D structural visualization of COVID-19 genomic divergence

Bioinformatics. 2020 Aug 1;36(15):4360-4362. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btaa550.


Motivation: As the COVID-19 pandemic is spreading around the world, the SARS-CoV-2 virus is evolving with mutations that potentially change and fine-tune functions of the proteins coded in its genome.

Results: Coronavirus3D website integrates data on the SARS-CoV-2 virus mutations with information about 3D structures of its proteins, allowing users to visually analyze the mutations in their 3D context.

Availability and implementation: Coronavirus3D server is freely available at
