Anyone who doubts that preprints are an amazing force for good should be swayed by this: the receptor for the Wuhan coronavirus is already identified and in the public domain thanks to h/t
NIAID scientists at Rocky Mountain Laboratories rapidly identified human ACE2 as receptor #2019nCoV uses to infect human cells. #coronavirus
So how long does it take to figure out what the receptor is? Hmmm, about a week... Yikes.

NEW (such a treasure), ACE2 receptor for nCoV RBD identified, like SARS, which makes us hopeful about our RBD #vaccine. It's just extraordinary how quickly the scientific community has responded to this outbreak.
