This will be a hands on workshop where participants will have the opportunity to use bioinformatics tools to look for and evaluate drugs to treat Zika virus. We will use BLAST, multiple alignments, and molecular modeling to identify potential drugs and determine if they might work.  The example below shows Sofosbuvir bound to the RNA polymerase from Hepatitis C virus.
