Protein structure: prediction and analysis



The course covers the concepts of molecular modeling and simulation. Major topics include force fields, statistical mechanics, molecular dynamics and the analysis of simulation results. Attendees will work through short tutorial on the topics discussed in the class.


The course is addressed to biochemistry, chemistry or physics graduate students and research scientists interested in molecular modeling and computer simulation. The course covers both the foundations of the field and advanced topics from current research in protein folding, enzymatic function and molecular recognition.
A basic knowledge of Unix is required for the practical sessions of the course.


The course was held from September 01 to September 05, 2008 and was formally announced through the embnet-news mailing list.

Registration deadline: July 31, 2008
