The 2014 PROTEO/CERMM Summer School on Computational Biochemistry will be held on August 14th and 15th at MB Building (John Molson) 1450 Rue Guy room MB-5.255. It will provide an introduction to computational techniques in biochemistry for non-specialists and non-programmers. We will cover molecular docking, homology modelling and molecular dynamics simulation all using Windows software only.
You will get an accessible theoretical introduction to the application of each software including many examples from literature, followed by a workshop where you will reproduce a computational experiment. The experiment will be thought using a protocol, which can later be used with your system in your laboratory.
Each of the programs used here are highly sophisticated and expandable. That means that if this summer school generates interest in computational biochemistry the tools can be used for more complex systems. The tools used during the workshops will be PyMOL, FlexAID, MODELLER, NAMD and VMD. For more information and the preliminary schedule please visit our website http://cermm.concordia.ca/proteo/.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Maximilian Ebert (email@example.com). Accommodation for one night will be covered and organized through the PROTEO network. Transportation will also be covered, however needs to be organized by the individuals (for PROTEO members only).
The number of seats is limited to 20, so register as soon as possible!
