Studying mutations in the Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) to predict mutation pathways in SARS-CoV-2 variants

Interdisciplinary Research Center HALOmem collected information regarding naturally-occurring variants of the Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), an epithelial receptor that both SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 use to enter the host cells.

This dataset will help accelerate the design of therapeutics against SARS-CoV-2, as well as contribute to prevention of possible future coronaviruses outbreaks.
