"Hands-on" Workshop on Structural DNA Nanotechnology at Urbana

Beckman Institute
University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
September 24-26, 2018

The NIH Center for Macromolecular Modeling and Bioinformatics held a five-day workshop dedicated to Structural DNA Nanotechnology at the Beckman Institute in Urbana, IL. The 32 participants were introduced to many topics related to principles, design and visualization of DNA origami self-assembly. State-of-the-art software, such as caDNAno and VMD, were presented during the afternoon hands-on sections, demonstrating the application of advanced techniques to solve complex molecular modeling and simulation problems. During the various social gatherings of the workshop, the participants had the opportunity to expand their network, discuss personal projects with Center's staff and enjoy a small fraction of the charming Champaign downtown atmosphere. The morning lectures can be seen on the Center's YouTube Channel.
