Stampede2, Bridges simulations show weak spots in Ebola virus nucleocapsid

The deadly Ebola virus shields its RNA genetic material in coils of proteins called nucleocapsids (above). The lab of Juan Perilla at the University of Delaware completed all-atom simulations of the nucleocapsid with (R) and without (L) RNA, showing that the RNA confers stability vs. disorder without.
