Thanks for all of the great efforts from everyone on this forum and project.
We have put together a page detailing a couple of ways we believe MiTeGen might be able help the broader efforts:
Enabling Research on SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 Webpage
But a quick summary might be easier here:
MiTeGen wants to do everything and anything we can to enable researchers to get immediate access to the tools, equipment, and information they need for work on SARS-CoV-2, and to help accelerate efforts to develop vaccines, treatments, etc.
We sit in a unique position in the structural biology research community. We have connections with nearly every crystallography beamline and cryo-EM user facility, as well as a customer base of thousands of researchers worldwide. We want to use this position to help in every way possible to benefit our community.
The main two ways we believe we can help are:
Sharing information, resources, and initiatives within our network (e.g. social, emails, etc.).
Prioritizing supplies of crystallography and cryo-EM materials and equipment for labs focused on related research, as well as sharing costs where needed. We are remaining open (with minimal on-site staff) to process requests for materials and equipment.
There are more details in the link above, but please don’t hesitate to contact us to share information, add resources, request materials, or to send us your ideas on how a supplier such as ourselves might be able to further help.
