Researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Tsinghua University and ShanghaiTech University presented a structural snapshot of SARS-CoV-2 replication and transcription complex (RTC) as it transitions toward cap structure synthesis. The related findings were published in the journal Cell in November 2020.
