Hands-on Workshop on Computational Biophysics

Monday, May 19, 2014 - 9:00am to Friday, May 23, 2014 - 5:00pm
  • 300 South Craig Street
  • Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center

This workshop will cover a wide range of physical models and computational approaches for the simulation of biological systems including ProDy, NAMD and VMD. The course will be based on case studies including the properties of membranes and membrane proteins, mechanisms of molecular motors trafficking in the living cell through water and ion channels, signaling pathways and druggability simulations. Relevant physical concepts, mathematical techniques, and computational methods will be introduced, including force fields and algorithms used in molecular modeling, molecular dynamics simulations on parallel computers, elastic network models, and steered molecular dynamics simulations.
