Media Coverage

Bioinformatics professor Dmitry Korkin was featured in an article highlighting a trend in researchers bypassing traditional journals in favor of publishing their findings more quickly online. Korkin and his team built a 3D roadmap of the coronavirus and posted it online to provide a tool for others to use in their own research. “We felt the urgency of this work,” Korkin said.

A stand-alone story about WPI’s role in developing and sharing a 3D roadmap of the novel coronavirus appears in Boston.com. The story includes quotes from WPI bioinformatics professor Dmitry Korkin and PhD students Senbao Lu and Oleksandr Narykov. The piece also includes several photos, a graphic of the novel coronavirus, and a 30-second video explainer.
