Abstract

discovery - This is a basic scientific research project on SARS-CoV-2. The aim of the project is to investigate in detail the mutual influences between the viruses and the metabolism of human host cells in a SARS-CoV-2 infection. Preliminary work has already identified certain ribonucleic acids (RNA) in the host cells, the expression of which is changed in the case of a SARS-CoV-2 infection. In the non-infected cell culture, this RNA should now be switched off (knockout) and the effects of an infection of the cells with the virus examined. Ultimately, possible new targets for pharmaceutical interventions against SARS-CoV-2 are to be found.
