Melbourne researchers are now simulating in 3D, the motion of the complete human rhinovirus, the most frequent cause of the common cold, on Australia´s fastest supercomputer, paving the way for new drug development. Rhinovirus infection is linked to about 70 per cent of all asthma exacerbations with more than 50 per cent of these patients requiring hospitalization. Furthermore, over 35 per cent of patients with acute chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are hospitalized each...
