EU Virus- X Consortium
A consortium of private companies and public researchers were recently awarded €8 million to explore viral genomic diversity, with the aims of crafting new sequencing approaches, bioinformatics tools, and targeted gene products.
The effort, called "Virus-X: Viral Metagenomics for Innovation Value," has been funded through Horizon 2020, the European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. Virus-X is to run for the next four years and includes 15 participants from eight countries. Prokazyme, an Icelandic enzyme supplier, is coordinating the project.
BSI co-director Ehmke Pohl will lead the work package on 'Protein characterisation and structure determinations'.
