From September 16 to 17, the final final of the 18th Challenge Cup National College Students' Extracurricular Academic Science and Technology Works Competition was held in Guizhou University. As the only team from Ocean University of China selected for the final final, the FluVar team participated in the final final online and won the national third prize.

According to the title Study on Molecular evolution Patterns of highly variable viruses based on Structural and computational models, the team conducted discussion and development, and selected influenza A virus for independent research and exploration. The mutation of highly mutated viruses poses an important challenge to epidemic prevention and control as well as vaccine and drug research and development. For the highly mutated virus, the team used molecular simulation, big data and artificial intelligence technology to establish an effective computational model, and trained and verified the model. The results reveal the molecular evolution pattern and epidemic trend of H1N1 virus, as well as the key drivers of virus evolution, and calculate and simulate the key mutations that may occur in the future of the virus, the effects of mutations on the transmission and immune escape ability of the virus, and the epidemic trend of new mutant strains. In the end, the team produced an application with good visualization and interactivity.



Students from participating schools submitted nearly 2,000 work projects in the special competition, and more than 700 works from more than 230 colleges and universities across the country were shortlisted for final approval. In the final examination, 105 grand prizes, 122 first prizes, 132 second prizes and 140 third prizes were awarded.

The Challenge Cup competition is a guided, demonstrative and mass competition co-sponsored by the Central Committee of the Communist Youth League, China Association for Science and Technology, the Ministry of Education, the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, the All-China Federation of Students and the provincial people's government, and is known as the Olympic event of scientific and technological innovation for contemporary college students. The event has been held since 1989 and has grown into a big stage attracting more than 2 million college students each year.

In order to implement the spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinpings important instructions, guide and promote college students to meet the major needs of the country, actively participate in the front line of scientific research, and accelerate the transformation of college students' scientific and technological innovation achievements into real productivity, since the 17th Challenge Cup competition, special competition units have been set up and special competitions have been held.

The 18th Challenge Cup competition opening list special competition on the basis of the original work to further open the list, optimize the event arrangement, closely follow the latest demand orientation of science and innovation power construction, A total of 21 enterprises, institutions, scientific research institutions and industry associations, including 502 Institute of China Aerospace Science and Technology Fifth Academy, China Unicom and Institute of Sociology of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, have released cutting-edge, applicable and competitive topics. Topics covered not only the frontier and key core technologies of scientific and technological development such as artificial intelligence, quantum communication, digital economy, biomedical science, big data, ecological and environmental protection, agriculture, oil and gas exploration, new energy and new materials, but also social and livelihood issues such as the youth interpretation of the Party's innovation theory, college student employment, and food security. Strive to build a arena to train and sharpen the spirit of self-reliance and self-improvement of college students in science and technology, effectively lead young students to mind the country's biggest, and collect wisdom to help solve key technical problems and social reality.
