Dear users,

the application deadline for the next "Hands-On Workshop on Computational
Biophysics" is next *Friday, March 10th*.

If you want to attend, don't forget to fill the application form. Enrollment
limited to 25 participants.



Joao Ribeiro

Brief description:

This workshop will be presented by members of the NIH Center for
Macromolecular Modeling & Bioinformatics at Urbana-Champaign. Topics will
cover instruction in state-of-the-art molecular dynamics simulation and
free energy techniques using NAMD <>,
bacterial cells simulation with Lattice Microbes
<> (LM) and biomolecular
visualization and analysis with VMD
<>. Morning lecture presentations
will introduce fundamental theory and concepts, while afternoon hands-on
computer laboratory sessions will allow participants to apply NAMD, LM 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
<>, a new teaching software
incorporating NAMD and VMD that significantly lowers the learning curve for
novice users.
