The Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group (TCBG), funded by National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation, is not only the developer of the widely used computational biophysics programs NAMD and VMD, but is also an ardent teacher and trainer in computational biophysics. The group has just completed its 40th hands-on computational biophysics training workshop, having now taught over 1,200 participants in intense face-to-face practical training sessions in small groups of typically 30 students. Participants are faculty, postdocs, industry professionals, and graduate students. The training material, in the form of very extensive tutorials, is freely available on the TCBG tutorial website. Below is the list of the workshops so far. The workshops are continuously improved, based on participant feedback and on the evolution of NAMD and VMD. TBCG intends to continue the workshops, developing for the purpose presently a new generation of training features built directly into NAMD and VMD in the form of the new user interface qwikMD. For more information, see the TCBG Training Website.
