"Biomolecular simulation "

28th June - 4th July | 2006 | Paris| France

 

 

About the course

 

Molecular modelling has become a major source of structural information on biological macromolecules. Advances in modelling and simulation methodology are bringing improved accuracy and possibilities to new applications.

The aim of this course will be to provide the basic theory and practical methods for those users who want to simulate the molecule they are doing experiments on.

 

At the end of the course, each student will have a reasonable grasp of the theory behind each simulation method and know how to put this into practice. Exercises will be done with low costs software so that users can continue once they get home. Assistance will be provided to enable the students to apply these methods to their own projects.

This course is open to:

  • biologists/ biochemists with an appropriate background, who are interested to extend their field research in computer simulation methods,

  • scientists/ students doing theoretical research in one of the areas (e.g. homology modelling), and wishing to learn how to expand their calculations to use (other) simulation techniques,

  • scientists from other areas (e.g. chemistry, physics) interested in moving into the field of biomolecular simulation.

 

Thanks to EMBO support, there are no fees for this course (registration, accomodation and boarding being covered for selected participants).
