Schematic protocol of i-QSAR analysis to study response of drug candidates to human
There is a strong risk of mutations in the genome sequence of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) in animals. Consequently, a possibility of zoonotic transfer of much stronger form of the present virus from animal to human is also very much feasible in near future. Thus, recent incidents of SARS-CoV-2 infection to animals need to be study very carefully to protect against any future transmissions. Interspecies analysis from animal to human or vice versa is the tool of choice of the present time for understanding zoonotic transfer and improving/accelerated drug discovery for the COVID-19.
