Short description

The VI-SEEM Life Sciences regional training “VI-SEEM e-Infrastructure services, Molecular Dynamics Simulations of Biomolecules and Computer-Aided Drug Design” will be held on 19-21 October 2016 in Belgrade.

Description

Objective:

This interactive course will introduce participants to VI-SEEM e-Infrastructure services, and then focus on the principles and applications of biomolecular modeling, and pinpoint how biomolecular problems, such as drug design, are being currently addressed by computational techniques.

Aims:

  1. Introduce VI-SEEM data and computational services, and their access methods.
  2. Hands-on training in classical Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations by examining the protein lysozyme of the NAMD program. Introduction to GROMACS.
  3. Computer-aided drug design with Schrodinger Suite and ChemBioServer. An introduction to virtual screening for computer-aided  drug design and application with the Schrodinger Suite software. The generated virtual screening results are then  post-processed (filtered) for toxicity, chemical similarity and validity of docking pose using the ChemBioServer software.
