Pregrevica 118, 11080 Belgrade, Room 300
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.



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.


  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.
