2nd Autumn School Bioinformatics Essen-Nijmegen
16 Oct 2012
Gert Vriend (UMC St Radboud Nijmegen) for the second time organizes an Autumn School in collaboration with Daniel Hoffmann of the University of Duisburg-Essen around the theme “Biomolecular Structure and Function – Computational Approaches”. The course is intended for PhD and MSc students who are interested in computational approaches to study biomolecules, their structure, interactions and mechanisms.
The Autumn school starts November 26 at the campus in Essen. The first week will focus on methods based on physical models of biomolecular systems. Topics include molecular dynamics simulation and related methods, biomolecular electrostatics, protein-protein-docking and matching, and datamining on sequences and structures.
The second week of the school will take place in Nijmegen and will deal with methods that make empirical knowledge available for modelling proteins. Topics of this week include homology modelling, ligand docking, computational solutions for structural analysis with X-ray, NMR, SAXS, or Cryo-EM.
If you want to participate you are requested to do a self-assessment before returning the application form. On the website of the Autumn School you can find more information about the programme and the admission procedure.
