Patrick Aloy is interviewed on La Sexta Columna: "Without computational analysis, molecular biology and molecular pathology wouldn’t exist. We provide a fundamental key piece".


The programme La Sexta Columna broadcasted by La Sexta has interviewed Patrick Aloy, head of the Structural Bioinformatics and Network Biology laboratory at IRB Barcelona, about the participation of his team in a European research project devoted to COVID-19. Aloy explains that the project will study the efficacy of more than 5000 drugs to fight this coronavirus. The scientist says, "If we do not get any results from these 5000 or 7000 compounds, we will have to widen the search and examine the million compounds that are available".
