We perform all-atom molecular dynamics simulations to study the effects of the N-linked glycans on the stability of the spike glycoprotein in SARS-CoV-2. After a 100 ns of simulation on the spike proteins without and with the N-linked glycans, we found that the presence of glycans increases the local stability in their vicinity; even though their effect on the full structure is negligible.
