Dmitry Korkin is a professor of bioinformatics and computational biology at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, where he specializes in bioinformatics of complex disease, computational genomics, systems biology, and biomedical data analytics. I came across Dmitry’s work when in February his group used the viral genome of the COVID-19 to reconstruct the 3D structure of its major viral proteins and their interactions with human proteins, in effect creating a structural genomics map of the coronavirus and making this data open and available to researchers everywhere. We talked about the biology of COVID-19, SARS, and viruses in general, and how computational methods can

This was an amazing interview, but I felt a big gap between Bach and the interviewer. Bach is just on another level of ideas. Still, a conversation to remember.

I love the podcast. Thank you. For this particular episode, it would have been useful to edit that record such that you introduce the concepts and jargon before Bach addresses them. It is very difficult to follow for someone who is not familiar with his ideas.
