Getting started with biomolecular simulations
Event Date/s: From Thursday 10 January 2019
To Friday 11 January 2019
This is a basic workshop on biomolecular simulation aimed at beginners, but all levels of expertise are warmly welcome.
We will provisionally have 4 sessions;
1) Using VMD to visualise protein structures
2) Validating your protein structures for simulation
3) Running a biomolecular simulation in the Cloud using BioSimSpace
4) Analysis of MD trajectories with Jupyter Notebooks
The workshop will be held in the LIDA teaching clusters, Level 11, Worsley building, University of Leeds
You can now register here.
The registration deadline is 3 January 2019 but early registration is advised as places are limited.
Space Available - 40
