The Disease Maps Project is designed as a large-scale community effort. It is a network of groups that work together in order to better understand disease mechanisms. The project exchanges best practices, share information, develop tools to make it easier for all the involved groups to achieve their goals.
Here we share resources and best practices to develop a disease map for COVID-19. The project is progressing as a broad community-driven effort. We aim to establish a knowledge repository on virus-host interaction mechanisms specific to the SARS-CoV-2. The COVID-19 Disease Map is an assembly of molecular interaction diagrams established based on literature evidence.
Multiscale and multicellular simulation of SARS-CoV-2 infection uncover points of intervention to evade apoptosis.
Our framework enables the simulation of the dynamics of signaling pathways that include the relevant players in SARS-CoV-2 infection, at the level of the individual cell and of the cell population. These different players encompass the virus, epithelial and immune cells. The model focuses on apoptosis and suggests two knock out alterations that force apoptosis of the
