Dr Hannes Loeffler and Dr James Gebbie-Rayet (Invited Speaker) attended the NSCCS AMBER Workshop - 6th to 10th of July 2015. This was a 5 day workshop on the molecular dynamics package AMBER at Imperial College London. The workshop introduced researchers in the field of molecular simulations to the broad collection of computational tools implemented in the AMBER and AmberTools software packages for molecular dynamics simulations. The workshop consisted of a series of short lectures followed by hands-on lab sessions that cover the use of AMBER and AmberTools and the theory behind it. There were opportunities for discussions with the tutors for advice with specific research problems. A poster session allowed participants to showcase their research and network with their peers.
James Gebbie-Rayet gave a 45 minute talk, introducing HECBioSim and the things the consortium has to offer to members of the academic community interested in biomolecular simulation.
