Bioinformatics reveals the structure of Coronavirus spike protein from West Bengal and what the triple mutations might imply.



What does a virus mutant mean? What can we learn from biochemistry that helps us understand the Spike protein that induces an immune response by the vaccine?
What effects the coronavirus West Bengal variant B.1.617 / B.1.618 may have based on structural bioinformatics analysis.
