Since the release of the first PDB structure from SARS-CoV-2 (PDB structure 6lu7), educational materials including molecular landscape paintings, downloadable illustrations, and a video demonstrating the effects of hand washing at the molecular level have been released into a Coronavirus Collection at PDB-101.
