Bioinformatics: A worthwhile hope to mitigate Pandemic COVID-19


The recent Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) causes an immense health crisis to global public health. World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 as a pandemic. The COVID-19 disease is caused by the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2). It is the need of the hour to develop an effectual and safe drug and vaccine against this deadly pandemic disease. The bioinformatics is only approach that can provide a fast, reliable and good drug and vaccine candidate in search of effective and timely cure of this dangerous pandemic disease, COVID-19 caused by SARS-CoV2. Bioinformatics deals with understanding and exploring biological complexity with the help of computer science. In the fight against pandemic the major challenge is to provide timely and fast solution of effective therapeutics. Another challenge is to find a way in between very less information and resources.Bioinformatics approach can pave a way to provide reliable solution. I invite young mind to join bioinformatics squad to mitigate global health challenges. Stay Safe! Stay Healthy!!
