*Hands-On Workshop on Computational Biophysics: June 6-10 in Pittsburgh, PA*

This workshop will be presented by members of the Theoretical and
Computational Biophysics Group from the University of Illinois at
Urbana-Champaign and members of the BTRC Center for Multiscale Modeling of
Biological Systems from the University of Pittsburgh.

The workshop will cover a wide range of physical models and computational
approaches for the simulation of biological systems including VMD, NAMD and
ProDy. The course will be based on case studies including the properties of
mechanical 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
computational nano-biology.
The workshop is designed for students and researchers in computational
and/or biophysical fields who seek to extend their research skills to
include computational and theoretical expertise, as well as other
researchers interested in theoretical and computational biophysics. Theory
sessions in the morning will be followed by hands-on computer labs in the
afternoon in which students will be able to set up and run simulations.
