Hands-On Workshop on Computational Biophysics: April 17-21 in Urbana, IL

Date: Fri Feb 17 2017 - 16:57:13 CST

Dear users,

The *NIH Center for Macromolecular Modeling & Bioinformatics* is once again
hosting the "Hands-on" Workshop on Computational Biophysics, this time in
Urbana, Illinois.

This workshop will be presented by members of the Theoretical and
Computational Biophysics Group from the University of Illinois at
Urbana-Champaign. Topics will cover instruction in state-of-the-art
molecular dynamics simulation and free energy techniques using NAMD
<https://www-s.ks.uiuc.edu/Research/namd/>, and biomolecular visualization
and analysis with VMD <https://www-s.ks.uiuc.edu/Research/vmd/>. Morning
lecture presentations will introduce fundamental theory and concepts, while
afternoon hands-on computer laboratory sessions will allow participants to
apply NAMD and VMD directly in a series of guided tutorials. The workshop
is designed for all students and researchers in computational and/or
biophysical fields who seek to extend their expertise to include
biomolecular simulations. Experimentalists and non-specialists are
encouraged to attend and will benefit particularly from instruction in the
use of QwikMD <https://www-s.ks.uiuc.edu/Research/qwikmd/>, a new teaching
software incorporating NAMD and VMD that significantly lowers the learning
curve for novice users.

Enrollment limited to 25 participants.
